No dialplan reload commnad on fresh install

I just compiled asterisk on debian etch.
/etc/init.d/asterisk start loads it fine and i can connect to CLI with
#asterisk -rvvv

after following the book (asterisk - future of voip) i put a sample extension.conf

include => internal

the book tell me to reload with “dialplan reload” command, but when i do that, I get no such command.

never mind. I realized that i did not save after make menuconfig
