The information  in ~/.ncbirc points to the data files used by the blast 
program suite, not to the programs themselves. For that there is the 
PATH shell variable.

You should add the location of blastall to your path, in your .cshrc or 
.bashrc depending on the shell you are using.

e.g. ad to your .cshrc file the following line:

setenv PATH = ${PATH}:/path/to/blastall

And then open a new shell to make in effective, or run

source ~/.cshrc

in an old shell.

It's probly a good idea to get a basic Linux/Unix tutorial book. Seems 
like your problems stem from being unfamiliar with the operating system.
