Opening a web page on startup

Hello, I recently installed Slackware Linux 9.0 on a computer in the hopes of making a samba server. But my question is on how i could open up a specific web site in mozilla at start up. I read some online comics, and its a hastle reopening them every time i start up. I was wondering if maybe there was some command i could use and then put in rc.local or maybe there is an easier way? Thanks in advance,

It might be better to bookmark a group of tabs...

Open all the pages you want in different tabs. In the Bookmarks menu, click "Bookmark This Group of Tabs". It will create a bookmark that contains all the URLs of all the open tabs.

When I put Mozilla in my /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file, it works if i put it before the start of the gnome window manager. But the web page comes up before the manager has been started, so if i try and put it after when it starts, it doesnt work. Have any ideas??
