Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Do you mean RedHat 9 (the old distribution) or Fedora 9 (the newest from Fedora series)? I just ask because sometimes people mix up the two and talk about "RedHat" versions when they really mean Fedora Core (up to version 6) or Fedora (from version 6 on) versions..
Anyway, you can have it start by adding it to the init (boot) scripts. I assume there's a /etc/rc.local or equivalent script that is run after all the other boot scripts, so you could just add /usr/local/bin/sarad to that script and it should be run after the other boot scripts are finished, independently of anybody logging in or not.
EDIT: you should edit your profile information and add there the operating system/distribution you are using; it helps answering your possibly distribution-specific questions.
To follow up from b0uncer, that's a really old unsupported, un-updated distro.
Do not use it on the internet, for your own safety.
If you must, then pls upgrade to eg Fedora (probably v8, as 9 has only just come out), or Centos (free ver of RHEL).
The problem is that the application is very old and it doesn't actually runs on more recent Linux versions, Red Hat is the only one that works. Anyway I have installed it on a virtual machine to host this application and it's connected only to a small private Intranet.
