Firstly try:
echo "Change CD, press Enter to continue..."

Secondly please place the script program in the first line, eg:
This is to ensure that the script is run using bash (/bin/sh under linux is 
bash). Not all shell scripts are equal, then again not everyone uses perl as 
their login shell (although I know someone who I suspect does!)
