Question How Do I Run A Script?


I'm new to linux and i just downloaded slackware 11 and installed it just fine. Seems to work except i cant mount my usb storage devices, So i looked all over the internet for help and found somewhere it said "Go to /dev and run the script "MAKEDEV" and that should work" when i go to that folder in the browser and click on the "MAKEDEV" file it just opens it in a text editor. So my question is how do i run that script?

You may need to add the execuable attribute to the script.
chmod +x name_of_file

I checked the properties of the file and it is checked as executable.
I went into konsole and typed

Code:
root@darkstar:~# cd /dev
root@darkstar:/dev#
root@darkstar:/dev# chmod +x MAKEDEV
root@darkstar:/dev#
How do i know if it did something?
