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.

You've got the whole /etc/rc.d for it. It just depends when you'd like the script to be started. The easies way will be to start it from /etc/rc.local. At the beggining of this file, give a command as you'd to to start it on a console. And it's done.
Mara: if youre doing it in -local how will that affect a command that i run as root? before anyone asks i have no desire to run it as a user... the script is go.sh -- i use it to connect my dsl modem to the internet... it has no user permissions to run

You don't need any permissions. It's a boot script! Just type it inside. If it's executable for root it will go.
finegan: yep-- bellsuck! nice moniker for it-- it has to be the world's worst isp (at least for dsl) there could possibly be...
some days it stays up until it renews the ip lease but most of the time it goes offline every hour or so and sometimes even more frequent like every 10 minutes... i know-- i have a b.s. website and probably no one checks it out and i dont get always get a lot of email on my mail server but id like for it to stay up more frequently...
i have a script for a reconnection--which, btw is not as easy as restarting pppd(you also actually have to rmmod uhci and wait a few sec's and then modprobe uhci again) but i really wish there was a script i could run in the background that checks if my computer is still connected and then if its not it will run my re.sh (restart connection script) for me and keep my offline time to a minimum...if anyone knows of such a script lemme know--ahh what am i saying--all you geeks have ethernet dsl modems haha...
