Hello Ranger225,

It is not that complicated, just start the program automatically at startup.

I remember that you can do that by adding the command to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

With kind regards,

Richard

If you add the program to /etc/rc.d/rc.local as instructed and use this format:
nohup myprog &

the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file gets run automatically every time the system re-boots, so you can't forget :)
