I'm using NW6.5 SP5. What I'm trying to do is write a script that will
shut down MySQL, copy the MySQL database to another location for backup,
and then start backup MySQL.

Is this possible to do with something written in a .ncf file? Or do I
have to do it another way? Any guides or anything on Novell's website
that I can look at that'll give me a basic or some sort on how to go
about doing this?
