why dont you grab the input stream from the runtime you are using and
print that to your console. that way you can see the OS response to
your failed command.

you can look at the source code on www.rigidsoftware.com, chessone
executes a program on the command line in linux. its been a while so I
dont remember how i did it, but its in the source code. probably unzip
the source and do a search on each file for the one containing the
getRuntime command...
