easiest way to make things autostart in KDE?

What's the easiest way to make things autostart in KDE? The only method I know is to make links to the applications and then put them in the KDE autostart folder. Last time I did that, I had a lot of trouble with not being allowed to make the links unless I was root. Is there a simpler way?

You can run "systemsettings", go to tab "Advanced" and there is "Autostart". I don't have english version, so I don't known how it is translated. There you can select program from menu or script from disk. I have version 4.
