As simple as that.

And if for some reason that won't work try
./check.sh

But sh check.sh should work. You may need to run it as root, and if so
su
and then your root password. Then run again.

If you want to do it that way, you'll need to chmod it first:
Code:
$ chmod +x check.sh

Argh, no apostrophe in plural...and syntax is just SYNTAX, no S!

On to the point (eventually I hope to eradicate misuse of the apostrophe!) the Rute User's Handbook (etc) is a great resource:

(Edit: Must be good, me and the other guy both posted it!)
