problem with the terminal and a shell script

I downloaded a shell script from linuxant that is supposed to scan your computer for your modem and then report back to you the proper driver you should get. once I tried to run it, the terminal pops up for about 2 seconds and is gone before I can read the suggested driver , how can I get the terminal to stay up longer?

go to the console, go to the folder where the script is located, and type ./script
For example, if I downloaded a script called run22 into my /home/user folder, I would do this:
cd /home/user
that should keep the console up so you can see the output.
