Try using "ls" to figure out what directories are availible? And question, why are you using absolute directory paths?

Ok, I did the ls thing but it has no meaning to me.

I don't know what I'm doing. I'm just following the directions from the
site.

Ok. I got past that error and found the file. I am at the part where I use Ralf S. Engelschall's bash script. I saved it in /usr/local/bin but I do not know what it means to make it executable by chmod 744. So I skipped over it. I typed in the following :
sign.sh server.csr
and got :
bash: /usr/local/bin/sign.sh: Permission denied
I'm signed on as root, so shouldn't it work?

Hmm. From the looks of that I did install it but now I am on the step that creates the certificate.

You shouldn't have skipped over that chmod step. You should do it so that the system knows that file can be executed directly (if you're going to be running a webserver, you really need to learn about Unix permissions and how they work, or you'll probably get no end of grief later). Alternatively, try typing 'bash sign.sh' from your /usr/local/bin directory.
