    Check with..

    Code:
    file install.sh
    To see what kind of file it is, if the file is transfered wrong from windows to linux ^M and other wierd format signs can appear in the program an corrupt it. If so execute the dos2ux > <newfile.sh> to reformat to correct "linux" format.

    If its already a correct shell executeble do as genlee says and check permissions or use sh -x install.sh to see what syntax that is wrong.
