4.4. What is Happening while the script is running

The following script file is the result of reading several of the Linux newsgroups and a lot of HOWTOs and manuals. I take no credit for originality but confess that this is a compilation of what those more experienced have told me. A very big thank you to all those in the newsgroups who responded to my questions and the ones posted by others who were seeking this information.

To get started, using your favorite text editor select a name for the file and, type in the following script for a user or superuser.
