You need a space after the sh ... sh is the shell that you are running, and /mnt/cdrom/games/americasarmy/ is the path to the game install file.

so the command would be:

sh /mnt/cdrom/games/americasarmy/

If the above command doesn't work ... the CDROM may not be mounted.... with most new linux distros there is an automount function. After you put the cd in the CDROM, do this command to see if it is mounted:

ls /mnt/cdrom/

If you get a list of files the cd is mounted ... if not type this command (with the cd in the CDROM):

mount /mnt/cdrom

Try the command again:
sh /mnt/cdrom/games/americasarmy/

if there are no errors,
