Shell scripts

I was just wondering what I have to do in order to run a shell script, I'm trying to install COPS and I have to run the reconfig shell script to set up the paths for system, but I can't seem to run it. I've tried just typing in the name of the script from within a shell, but that doesn't work, so what is it that I'm not doing. I really don't have a clue as to how to do this, yet so many programs that I'm trying to install depend on it.....

Any help would be greatly appreciated....

put ./ infront of the filename when you type it in. ./filename
