    UNIX:
> -------snip-------

    #!/bin/sh
    # This is a comment, the 1st line above is a special comment: 
    # it tells UNIX to invoke /bin/sh (the standard command interpreter 
    # for scripts to process this script

    # adjust your PATH to your needs
    PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/bin:     # export your PATH into the environment     export PATH

    # no need for echo off, this is kind of default     echo "To run this installation please type (at the CD-ROM prompt)"

        # UNIX has no drive letters, all drives ( if mounted ) should be accessible under the directory '/', the root directory     

    if [ "X$1" != "X" ] then

        # 1st parameter ( $1 ) is not empty, I suppose $1 should contain the
      # base directory of your stuff
      
      # note: put white space between 'cd' and the directory name
      cd /
              
              # cp does not create directories, you have to create them
yourself
              mkdir  $1/DB543/
              mkdir  $1/DB543/SERVER
              mkdir  $1/DB543/SERVER/SCRIPTS

           cp /SERVER/SCRIPTS/Install.bat
/$1/DB543/SERVER/SCRIPTS/Install.bat
      # output redirect  >NUL would be in UNIX: >/dev/null
      # but cp won't give any messages except an error occurred
      # so we can omit this
            

    fi
    # note: 'fi' means end if     

         $1/DB543/SERVER/Scripts/Install.bat $parm1 $parm2 $parm3

         sqlplus system/manager_at_db
          -------snip-------

Just a few notes:
        This is just a try to "translate your DOS Batch file"
        Be sure to make your scripts executable:
                   chmod +x yourscript and
                   chmod +x $1/DB543/SERVER/Scripts/Install.bat 
        In Unix there is also no need to call a script '.BAT'. You can
simply call it 'install' or
        if you like to 'install.sh' to indicate that is is a Bourne Shell
Script (standard scripting language on UNIX).
        Unix is case sensitive. 
        I don't know exactly what you are going to do with parm1, so I can't
figure out more...

Hope this helped a bit.
