Compiz at startup

I have installed Xgl and compiz on my laptop running suse 10.0 runs very well, but this is a powerful laptop. I am unsure of how I get compiz to run at start up. Currently I have to run..
compiz --replace gconf &
gnome-window-decorator &

and then everything is fine. Is there a way for all this to be done before hand, I found the suse instructions a bit lacking as I only really know kde and this is the first time I have played with gnome since 1995 and redhat5.2... Do I need to be doing something with gnome-conf?

Okay I have written a script that start compiz etc, as follows....
compiz --replace gconf decoration wobbly fade minimize cube rotate zoom scale move resize place switcher &
gnome-window-decorator &
Now if I run this in the terminal it works fine, but if I put it in session startup programes in gnome it does work. Is there something speicial I have to do? Is the order important, I set it at 50. Would I be better putting the script somewhere else maybe /etc/init.d/rc5.d?

Any ideas?
