Adding Cairo-Dock to the list of startup applications


Hey all,
I'm very new to linux. I'm running Ubuntu maverick meercat 10.10. I don't think it's very necessary to mention my hardware to get an answer to this question.
I found out about the Cairo-Dock and fell in love with it. It annoys the hell out of me to have to start it every time I boot. I navigate to-

System> Preferences> Startup Applications

Under the startup programs tab I click on add... Now what??? Put the name as Cairo... what about the command. I don't know what file to navigate to. Could someone please help?

it's "cairo-dock -c &" no quotes, if not using a accelerated graphics card and "cairo-dock -o &" if using OpenGL
