Where are you getting the install packages from?

The script you are entering is removing your /home/user directory, replacing it with the contents of the tar archive and starting the ssh server (remote terminal).

I don't know what bearing this has on your error message though, can you please share what the error message is stating?

I have installed mandriva 2008 and went to get deep freeze from www.faronics.com. The first issue I see is that this software is aqvailable for Linux, but only Novel SLED this could be the primary reason for it not working.

as for learning commands:
if you type "ls /bin/|xargs whatis;ls /usr/bin/|xargs whatis" into he terminal it will give the list of all commands that can be run as a standard user and a brief description of the functionality.
Running "ls /sbin/|xargs whatis;ls /usr/sbin/|xargs whatis" will give the description of all commands that can be run as the admin.

if you want further info on a command type "man command".
