/bin/sh Permission Denied


I get this error anytime I try to install something... Well when I am following the instructions (I am windows , and am used to double clicking an install file and voila its magic), and I type something like:

./tools/wineinstall

Please keep in mind this is only one example.. I want to set the permissions, or whatever will fix it, for good. Please help

OK when you install things are you the root user. If not type su then enter the root password when prompted and follow the install instructions you talked of.
If you are in root when the errors occur you could try to change the permissions on /bin/sh. In root use chmod to modify the permissions on /bin/sh. Type man chmod for a full list of options.
