Bastard greenstone!

Greenstone is a suite of software for building and distributing digital library collections. It is not a digital library but a tool for building digital libraries. It provides a new way of organizing information and publishing it on the Internet in the form of a fully-searchable, metadata-driven digital library. It has been developed and distributed in cooperation with UNESCO and the Human Info NGO in Belgium. It is open-source, multilingual software, issued under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Great, I got that, it's installed on my mac, but I'm such a programming idiot that I can't even make terminal work.
I feel:Frustration
I type in ./gs2-server.sh and I get "no such file or directory"

Hi Kay,
You need to open a terminal session on the Mac and find the location of the file. Give me a buzz and I can show you how to do this.
