Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I place an echo and the echo executes
its only the echo that is executing, nothing else
okay the password file was missing, when I checked my mail for that subject line, I had about 20 or so mails
there is an exit after that if clause, so if password file is not found, the script exits.
That was fixed and now it works fine.
Thanks so much for your involvement.
