Another think I want to ask you guys is, which is the file in which I put the commands I want Debian to execute when it boots up? (Ex. th 'rc.local' file in RedHat). Thanks again.

OK here what you want to do.
man rc.boot

According the the man page,


RC.BOOT(5) Debian GNU/Linux Manual RC.BOOT(5)

NAME
/etc/rc.boot - directory for local or per-package boot scripts.

DESCRIPTION
The /etc/rc.boot directory is obsolete. It has been superseded by the /etc/rcS.d direc_
tory. At boot time, first the /etc/rcS.d directory is scanned and then, for backwards
compatibility, the /etc/rc.boot directory.

The directory /etc/rc.boot is scanned by the program run-parts(8). The scripts found
that have valid filenames for the run-parts program will be run in lexical sort order
of the filenames.

SEE ALSO
run-parts(8), init(1).
