Hello All,

Can some one help me to understand how inittab works and how to schedule a job so in /etc/inittab so that once the server is up it will automatically start the services..

I would be great if you can refer some docs to me so that i can start from scratch to expert level..Thanks in Advance

1. For details on init processes, you can refer: http://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/sect_04_02.html

2. In order to run jobs/scripts when system starts up, you can add script in /etc/rc.local. Or to run at particulat run level, use /etc/rc.d/rc.<run_level>.
