Ęchmod: nessus.tar.gz: No such file or di
restore of nessus.tar.gz failed
nessus.tar.gz: MD5 check failed
x - now extracting this archive 63997: cannot open nessus.tar.gz: No such file
tar: nessus.tar: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `nessus.tar': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `nessus.tar.gz': No such file or directory

Well, it is saying that the nessus tar.gz file cannot be found. If you have it on your computer, you probably need to place it in the same path as your install script.
