Well, if you are really a noob, maybe you shouldn't be playing with the device you can rather easily brick?

Make sure the scripts follow a certain convention (I pretty sure not all of it is needed, perhaps only the first and the last lines, but it's better to be on the safe side, right?):

Code:
#!/bin/sh

_FUNCTIONS=/etc/rc.d/functions
[ -f ${_FUNCTIONS} ] && . ${_FUNCTIONS}

update_percent_complete()
{
    _PERCENT_COMPLETE=$((${_PERCENT_COMPLETE} + $1))
    update_progressbar ${_PERCENT_COMPLETE}
}

update_percent_complete 2

<do your stuff here>

update_progressbar 100

return 0
The first line tells the OS this script has to be run by shell. Make sure you save the file as a UNIX text (with UNIX line feeds, not Windows/DOS CR/LF). If you don't, the shell script will not be executed.
