I'm using synce to talk to my Ipaq but it requires various commands to setup properly.
I know that you can script these but am having problems understanding how to write a script that will send a comand as user then a second command as SU.
I know it'll be fairly simple but I'm haviong real brain fade.

su -c "second command"
If you want to do this without it asking for the root password, you'll need to investigate sudo. man sudo gives a good explanation of how it works and the config file is well comented with examples.

Make sure you make the script executable afterwards using chmod +x or by running `bash /path/to/script.sh` or something to that effect.
