depends on the distro ( I see your using suse) setup. I've never used suse, but i imaging it uses sysvinit startup scripts. do a google on sysvinit.

To make a script run at startup, place the script in /etc/init.d. Then do a symbolic link to that script in your runlevel (/etc/rc?.d). If you are in runlevel 3, then set your symbolic link in /etc/rc3.d
