Unhappy missing commands

My notebook has Ubuntu 9.04 installed.
I am trying some examples from chapter02.
Some of the commands ex. do, touch, rm are not being recognize by shell.
also read command (used in script 'variable') is not responding.
The shell installed in my notebook is 3.2.48(1),
where as shell mentioned in the book is 2.05(b).
Does it make a difference?
Here is a typical output:
vsrks@vsrks-laptop:~/544977-blp3e/chapter02$ /bin/sh ./and_list
: command not found
: command not found
./and_list: line 14: syntax error: unexpected end of file
vsrks@vsrks-laptop:~/544977-blp3e/chapter02$ /bin/sh ./variable
Hi there
Hi there
Enter some text
': not a valid identifier `myvar
$myvar now equals Hi there
: numeric argument required0
