if it's properly installed, you should be able to just type "maya" in a console.

The program is probably installed into /usr/aw

It looks like you don't have csh.
Try editing /usr/local/bin/maya, changing the first line "#!/bin/csh" to "#!/bin/sh" or, if you do have csh somewhere, "#!/usr/bin/env csh".

Except for the first line, which tells your shell which interpreter to use to run the script. For example, "#!/bin/sh" says use the Bourne Shell (or bash if you have /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash), and "#!/usr/bin/perl" uses Perl ...etc...
In your first error, you see that Bash (apparently your default shell) initially opened the script, saw the first line and attempted to open a C shell (csh). When it failed, it told you that it couldn't find /bin/csh

Apparently this script is specific to csh (probably why it wants to use it), so i think the only solution is to change that line back to what it was and install csh on your system.

well i'm afraid i must take back what i said...
i'm having a new problem now. when i try to open maya it takes me to the regestry screen and i have to put in all the license crap. thats fine once, but this is every time i load it. after i'm done it gives me the option to "exit the setup and run maya". so i clicked next. in my shell i got this message.
Code:
Warning: Invalid AW_COMMON location (/usr/aw), redefining
and then it opened the license thingy again.

what to do, what to do...

1. install redhat (maya is officially supported only on redhat)
2. call alias and they will help you
