/bin/bash: bad interpreter: permission denied
Is the floppy mounted with the "noexec" (no execute) option? You can find out by running the mount command.
The floppy may be mounted "noexec" without you specifying it in /etc/fstab. For example, msdos filesystems mount with the "noexec" option by default, resulting in the "permission denied" error.
If you're using the msdos filesystem on the floppy, add "exec" to the options in /etc/fstab for the floppy device in question. For example:
/dev/fd0 /home/lyle/floppy auto noauto,users,exec 0 0
