   Just create a shell script called sseti and put it in /home/user/bin. Be sure that /home/user/bin in your PATH with echo $PATH. If it isn't then you can add it via /home/user/.bash_profile

The script would be

#!/bin/bash

cd /usr/home/programs/seti
./setiathome


   Tho if I were you I would put setiathome in /home/user/bin too. Then you could just put setiathome instead of ./setiathome in the script.
