load pre-made script

Hi. I need to load a free script that I have downloaded. Normally I would load the mel file into the script editor, highlight the entire thing, and save it as a button onto the shelf. With this particular script I get a button, but it doesn't do anything. The instructions for the script say:

It is a mel script only, therefore just copy it in the desired script location, source AxCrack.mel and run AxCrack.

I dont really understand this. Do I need to load the script in a different way? Any help much appreciated!

Some scripts will need to be executed manually.

Type AxCrack(); into your script editor and run that.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Do I need to put the script file somewhere special?

Typically here on a PC:

C:\Documents and Settings\<userName>\My Documents\maya\scripts
