Question Run commands at logout/shutdown


Hi all !
I have been using Linux RH9 for a month and I'm already an addicted ! Reading this forum, I've found a lot of answers to my newbie questions, but now I have to ask something.
I know that you have to put your script in /etc/rc.d/rc.local if you want to run a command at startup, but what about running it at logout or shutdown? Where do I have to put it?
Thanks in advance

P.S.: My Linux system is now working almost perfectly, but in the next days I'll bore you with another pair of questions...

For logging out look at .bash_logout.

For shutdown or reboot read up about the inittab file, or the readme in /etc/init.d, or do a man init or man inittab for some clues.

Cheers--

or maybe /etc/rc.d/rc.6 if such a thing exists in redhat
