Problem with "test" utility

I'm having a problem with the "test" utility.
I'm using Red Hat Linux v6.1 (Cartman) - Kernel 2.2.12-20 which I installed not long ago.

I've been typing in some simple shell scripts (inspired by Linux Programming for Dummies) to compare 2 numeric variables - equals, greater than, less than etc etc. Whatever I do, it's giving me the wrong answer - $? is equal to 1 when it should be 0, and vice versa.

Any suggestions ?

Many thanks
