I take it you are running Fedora 14, no?

Go to System -> Preferences -> Personal -> Startup Applications. From there, you can add programs to start automatically when you login.

Cheers,

Josh

By doing my research, this is a graphical-based terminal - You are better off editing your startup applications in your settings. Are you asking for it to start up before you log in? Technically that is impossible......

I need to ask though... Are you using gnome or KDE?

Why do you want to change it using cli?
I don't understand what you mean by
