how to add "hdparm -c 1 -d 1 -k 1 /dev/hda" to startup script (as root)?

A linux friend of mine said I should use the command mentioned on this Hard Drive Speed Tweak (JustLinux) page. He said he liked it so much he added it to his startup script.

How do I add that command to my startup script?

Do I just put the line in at the end, and it should work?
