1. Cant exicute program while booted off boot and root install disks????

I'm looking to be able to boot off the linux install disks, then mount
like fd0 or hda1 and exicute a program (i.e. pico) that is on one of
those disks(or possibly if the program could be incoprerated into
color.gz, eather one works). But when I mount either device, then try to
exicute the program that is in that directory, which I *am* able copy,
move and chmod, it wont exicute. *But* I can exicute shell scripts that
are on the divice (fd0/hda1).

Is it even possibal to run programs that are on a disk? Is there a shell
command or somthing that can be used?? What can I do???
