try writing the line in /etc/bashrc
this will be executed each time the system starts and each time a user login

or the other way round keep it in a script file with a short name and then run script before connecting

I suspect FC4 uses "udev", and it's clearing the links at reboot. You need to create a udev "rules" file that will recreate the link automatically for you. Info here:
