If you are in the same directory as the script you can just type "./createvm.sh" to execute it. Are you receiving an error when trying to execute it?

I have had errors with this format -- I have had to type 'bash script_name.sh'.

Do yo have a line similar to this at the top of your script

#!/bin/bash

this tells shell what kind of script it is when you execute using ./script_name

I figured it out, I had to chmod 755 the script and I had a space after the slash, once I did these two things, I got it to work, I knew already that it was a bash script, I am having to relearn all kinds of *nix things.

Thanks, Tom
