I am trying to get wvdial to start at boot time instead of me having to manually start it every time I want to connect. I have tried searching for the answer on google but every site I goto the suggestion does not work or like in one suggestion I read there is no such file as /etc/rc.d/rc.local on my system. There are the runlevel directory's but no file called rc.local. I have tried to create my own shell script and create a link to it in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d directory but I still had no connection after booting into runlevel 3. But my shell script works if I manually execute it from the command-line or through a terminal. I have configured wvdial correctly as I can start the connection manually with no problems, but I cannot get the connection to start at boot time. So can someone please tell me how to get the connection going at boot time in plain simple english as I do not know much about init scripts (runlevel scripts) other than they start things at startup.
