You will need to add it to one of your rc.d files, I would think the best option is /etc/rc.d/rc.local. As root, edit the file and add your seti client command with parameters. This will cause it to start after all the others, and it won't have the nice green [OK] thing on boot. If you want that, then you need to read around how init scripts work.

Hope this helps.
