In Scheme, the first thing in a list like this is assumed to be
an expression that evaluates to a function.  Scheme sees
"root/snd-5" and says "that looks like a variable, but I
can't find any such name", so it complains about an unbound
variable.  You want either "load" or "load-from-path" as in:

(load "/root/snd-5/examp.scm")

or, you could define a function named root/snd-5:

(define (root/snd-5 file)
    (string-append "/root/snd-5/" file)))
