Can't run my first script

I'm trying to run a script to start dropbear, using the code found on this thread.
It looks like this
#!/bin/sh
/etc/init.d/dropbear start

Then I created this manifest:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<package>
<metadata>
<dc-metadata>
<Title>startDropBear</Title>
<Description>start ssh</Description>
<Date>2008-01-24T12:01:46</Date>
</dc-metadata>
<y-metadata>
<startpage>startDropBear.sh</startpage>
</y-metadata>
</metadata>
</package>

The icon of the directory is the one of the big X, meaning that I can do nothing with it.
I verified using mrxvt that command
/etc/init.d/dropbear start
run from the shell does work.
Where am I wrong?

The X icon means only, that there is no standard icon associated with the sh files. It should work anyway.

Maybe putting this on line 2 will help:
scriptdir=`/usr/bin/dirname $0`

This is the new code, now working:
#!/bin/sh
export DISPLAY=:0
export scriptdir=`/usr/bin/dirname $0`
cd $scriptdir
/etc/init.d/dropbear start

I copied lines 2-4 from mrxvt's run.sh code. I think lines 2 and 4 are not necessary. I suspect that line 1 is also useless. Am I right?
The meaning of line 3 is to tell the machine that the script is executable from the current directory. Right?
And the meaning of lines 2 and 4?

PHP Code:
#!/bin/sh  ### tells the machine where to find the shell
export DISPLAY=:0   ### tells the machine which display to use. i think this is standard environment, when started from contentlister.
export scriptdir=`/usr/bin/dirname $0`  ### this tells the programm, that the scriptdir is the directory, from which the *.sh was started.
cd $scriptdir  ### this changes to the directory.
/etc/init.d/dropbear start 
Why this helps though, i have no idea.

Did you start your wired connection or wireless connection beforehand?
If not, you should start from "usr/bin/wired.sh" and "/usr/bin/wireless.sh".

I am looking for ways to execute dropbear on memory card, without copying any files to internal memory. Any help is welcome.

Edited:
I solved my problem. A package is uploaded with the "Unbrickable" thread.
