The name is not important. As long as:
- it is executable ('chmod 755 squeak.sh')
- it starts on the first line with '#!/bin/sh'. The 'hash-bang'
convention is interpreted by the Unix kernel, everything following the
'hash-bang' (in this case /bin/sh) up to the end-of-line is interpreted
as an executable. This executable is started with the name of the file
as the first argument (e.g. '/bin/sh squeak.sh').

cd /mnt/cf/Documents/application/octet-stream
./squeak -calibrate -rotate -memory 10m dynapad-r01.image

If you put this in a file called 'dynapad', do 'chmod 755 dynapad' and
make sure that this file is somewhere in your PATH ('echo $PATH' to find
out), you can start it from anywhere.
