You need to use a text editor like Vi or pico, both of which are  
included on your mac.  In you applications folder, go into the  
utilities folder and ope Terminal.  cd to your Desktop (cd Desktop)  
and open Vi by typing "vi" or "pico" (without quotes).  These programs  
let you give whatever file extension you want (you want .cmd). I like  
Vi (I'm just used to it, there are plenty of other editors out  
there).  Below are links to a Vi tutorial -


Elaine and Thomas - often TextEdit puts in little bits of machine  
code, this has caused me some grieve in the past, so I avoid that  
program at all costs.
