Sirwah, I don't mean to be rude or anything, but unless you get at least 
a basic understanding of how scripts and executables work under unix, it 
will be near impossible to explain any of this to you.

I suggest you get comfortable with a text-editor (vi is very popular, as 
well as emacs and any of its clones), a text-viewer ('more' or 'less' 
should be available - 'less' is preferrable) and the 'man' and 'info' 
commands. Then you should read up on what makes unix tick, because until 
you do, you'll be asking half a dozen questions here every day, and 
finally people will get tired of answering how 'ls', 'chmod' and other 
kindergarten level things work.

Still, I don't mean to be rude, but you need to learn how to crawl 
before you can start walking.
