OK, I'm guessing the problem is that your CGI posting doesn't understand 
#!/bin/sh.  An option that another list member, Earnie Boyd, has suggested
in the past to address this issue is to create small program called !#
that invokes either /c or cmd.exe /c (or something like this - 
I don't remember the details).  Maybe you could try that.  If you can't use 
/bin/sh at all, you'll need to change your script to do something in DOS on 
Windows machines...
