Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Do you want the file to open in QTDesigner? Should be something like "qtdesigner file.pro" - you can put that in the sessions preferences, too. It's probably all in the command line switches of qtdesigner - try man qtdesigner (I don't use it, so I can't even tell you if the man file exists).
You have to edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add a single line to the end of the file which starts the program. You need to be root to do this. If the program name is "/usr/bin/coolProgram", then you would add a line that says "/usr/bin/coolProgram" or you can usually just put "coolProgram".
If the program you want to start has a Graphical User Interface then you probably can't start it using the rc.local file. The program will fail because when the rc.local script is run the gui is not running. If you are using fedora and the gui is running it will end and restart before you log in. The way to start a program that uses a gui is described by Samsara. Have you tried it that way? Go to the applications menu, go to Preferences and then Sessions.
