no, you can make shell scripts executable, so that if you type the name, it will execute it just like you typed all that in ( and just like "source <file>" or "sh <file>" .

so just do "/sbin/mkbootdisk" and it should run.

You can add /sbin to your $PATH variable if you don't want to have to use /sbin/<whatever>
