Getting A .sh file to Run - Medusa CAD

I have downloaded a free CAD program, Medusa4, and saved the file to the folllowing location:


What command line entries do I use to get this program to run. I am admittedly somewhat command line challenged.

I am running Mepis 8 Linux with csh enabled.

Any and all help would be appreciated. Michael

Well, either
sh /home/michael/
or do the following:
$ chmod +x /home/michael/
$ ln /home/michael/ /usr/bin/medusa
$ medusa
The second will let you just type in 'medusa' in a terminal to open in. The 'chmod +x' makes it executable, then 'ln' creates a link from that script in /usr/bin.
