Run a command at boot

My Modem will not work at boot up so i modified the install script so that it will just load the module and synchronize the modem.

I need to run /home/ace/System/eagleconfig2 on startup (in the text mode part)

Please Help

In Knoppix you can do the following:
cp /home/ace/System/eagleconfig2 /etc/init.d
chmod +x /etc/init.d/eagleconfig2
Then run rcconf and select eagleconfig2
You are done. It should work at reboot.

Thanks for the help i did get it to run on startup but it produced a lot of weeors. However i did find that using an older version of Eagle-USB got it to work fine, the newer version didn't run on startup as it should have done.
