Finding bulb mode on Nikon D5000?

We cannot set the D5000 to "bulb" mode for long exposure. The instructions in the manual (around page 84) seem simple:
Rotate dial to "M"
Rotate the command dial until “Bulb” appears in the viewfinder or information display

This doesn't work - "bulb' never shows up. I haven't found this problem discussed anywhere else, so what are we doing wrong?

Also, we messed around with the settings pretty extensively trying to find this. We reset them as on page 153:
"custom settings menu" - "reset custom settings" - "yes"
I'm really hoping that worked.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
