Adding Boot Commands


Hi I'm on Debian Sarge, I need to ad a bunch of commands that should run after I select Linux from my LILO Menu and before X-Window starts. How would I go about doing that?

ie. one of the commands I need to add is /sbin/modprobe evdev

Thanks,
Peter

Anyone? I read somewhere that for other Distros they use an rc.local file or something like that to get this done. Is there something like that in Debian that I can use?

Peter

Could I need to edit /etc/modules ? (not modules.conf) ? Where should I stick in the command 'modprobe endev' ?

init?
I don't know what the definition of init is..............
it's the mode/level your system is running on..........
you can find something about init in file /etc/inittab

when you boot your system, it will run into the default init.
the default init is configured in /etc/inittab also....
