The -z test returns true if the variable being tested is unset. The fact 
that DATABASE is getting the default value indicates that the script is 
having problems reading your configuration file.

Are you mounting the floppy drive via autofs (or similar)? If not, are you 
ensuring the floppy is mounted before the script gets run? What happens 
if you run this script from the command line?
