put it in a file that is read everytime the system boots.

In Red Hat, that would be
/etc/rc.d/rc.local

In SuSE
/etc/rc.d/boot.local

Just look in the rc.d dir you will probably find an equiv for most every system

Or edit the /etc/init.d/network script and set it there.

Just remember which file you set it in so you can change it if you need to. (Log books are a great thing to have)
