Subject: 1.5_ALPHA INSTALL has grep??

Using the 1.5_ALPHA boot floppies from the 20000620-1.5 snapshot for i386,
I exit immediately to the prompt and type grep <text> *

First surprise:  no "grep: not found"

Second surprise: it doesn't work -- the above command takes in from stdin
rather than the glob expansion, and I know globbing works because ls /d*

Third surprise:  there's no grep to be found in my path!

I'd like to be able to use a statically-linked grep mounted off an nfs
directory, but where to stick that dir in the
path?  explanations/suggestions?
