Try putting them in "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" This file is designed for user modifications, so it shouldn't cause any conflicts with other scripts. If your working on a stock install this file should be empty, so put your lines anywhere. Then:
"shutdown -r now" will reboot your machine. "reboot" may also be a link to this same command.
As for the "startup" file, there are many, including 1 for each run level, and to be exact, they are actually startup "folders" which contain scripts to be run when you enter (and leave) each run level. They are called "rc*.d" where "*" is the number of the run level.
(he he, you're too fast for me tricky!)
