Executable scripts (ie. non binaries) will usually have a line at very
beginning which specifies what program will be run for the contents of
the file. eg. something like..
for a normal shell script, or
#!/usr/bin/perl (usually perl 4)
#!/usr/local/bin/perl (usually perl 5)
The file not found error is ususally that the o/s can't find the
executable as defined in the #! line.

All sounds ok there, so probably not the above problem.

Hmm, I seem to remember (and I didn't really understand why) someone
mentioning this before. Basically MiNTOS doesn't understand the #!
and you need a modified shell to get it to work. So I'd guess that's
the problem and you need to find a MiNTOS'ified tcsh.
