Thanks for the in-sight into the script code.

I could not get the /etc/ to run at reboot.

After doing some research I found that dhclient-script
was checking for /etc/dhclient-exit-hooks.

Changed /etc/ to /etc/dhclient-exit-hooks
and it worked.

Thanks again

That tests whether the program exists and is executable.

Looks like that should work...
