What's going on is that condor_dagman is not in your path (the list of
directories where the shell searches for programs to run).  On Linux,
etc., you can see your path by giving the command 'echo $path'.  On
Windows, just run the command 'path'.

There are basically two things you can do to get this to work:
1. Explicitly specify a DAGMan binary.
2. Add the directory containing the DAGMan binary to your path.

Since it looks like your current directory contains condor_submit_dag,
also probably contains condor_dagman.  If that's the case, you can do

    ./condor_submit_dag -dagman ./condor_dagman

The real solution, though, is to change your path so that it includes
directory in which the condor binaries are installed.  The details of
doing this depend on exactly what shell you're running, but basically
edit your .bashrc or .cshrc file, or whatever, and add the Condor
directory to the path.

Here's some info about setting the path on Windows:
