Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So lets say I have the following.
The program I want to run is called firewall.sh
My default runlevel is 5
I put firewall.sh inside "/etc/rc.d"
chmod 755 firewall.sh to make it executable
then I change directory to "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d".
Now I create a symbolic link to it "ln -s ../firewall.sh S80firewall"
The S means it will execute on startup. 80 is the number in succession you want it to execute. and then name it
Off the top of my head, that should be all you need to do.
Ok, the apps that I want 2 conf 2 run automatically at startup is windows apps. Im using crossover and install lotus notes client for windows via crossover and it work. lotus notes email client it has app that call notes minder (will notice us if we receive a new mail) and i want to put it at my suse's startup program. the apps name is "nminder.exe".
