I have a shell script that I copied to my bin folder (see below). I would like to be able to run my script during installation of my on SUSE (Linux) OS. Although my command work when I run them manually from root. They do not work when I run them from root by typing "#sh MyScript.sh" (without quotes).  
My script errors during the “cd /var..” command and say it is unable to find the file or directory.
Could someone tell me, what is the easiest way to automatically install a package during the installation of a suse (Linux) OS? Should I use a shell script to run the rpm commands or should I try to edit the root/autoinst.xml?  


--myScript.sh---

#!/bin/bash
echo "starting..."
cd /var/os/suse/x86_64/
rpm -Uvh jpackage-utils-1.7.5-14.6.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh unixODBC-2.2.12-198.17.x86_64.rpm
echo " "
echo "End install..."

Finaly experts got notice to help you but you do not seem to need it.
I would propose to go about RTFM-ing before shouting RPM:
