    If $? is -1, then script2 is not getting invoked. How do you know that script2 is getting invoked at all? Is it doing something? Can you see it in a ps statement?

    Please print out an error message that contains the string-ified version of $! (That is, put something like print "$!" in your code).

    I strongly suspect that either you're forgetting to set your PATH variable or have forgotten to make SCRIPT2 executeable. Or maybe you typo'ed the name of SCRIPT2 in your system statement.

    Either way, the complete and total lack of markup in your responses makes it exceedingly difficult to read what you're trying to say.
