Adding process to startup Kubuntu

Hi. I just installed kubuntu to my tv pc. The kubuntu has vnc built inn and i can remote control it from my windows pc.

Now back to my problem, if my linux pc reboots, i have to manualy login to be able to connect to the desktop again. Is there any way to start the VNC process before the login screen ? Or maybe able to make it auto login ?

I also wish to have a VNC server running on it. How do I add this to startup ?

I fixed the login/vnc problem by removing the login screen.

(System Settings -> Advanced -> Login Manager -> Convenience, click on "Administrator Mode" and mark "Enable Auto-Login", then "Apply". ) if anyone needs it.

Now the ventrilo server, I made a script named ventstart
cd /home/slampig/ventsrv/
and i changed mode to 777 (tryed x first, but then i couldent run the script) "chmode 777 ventstart"
Now i can run the script ./ventstart and the server starts. I put this file in etc/init.d/ and did this command "update-rc.d ventstart defaults".

When i rebooted only the ventrilo server started, not the desktop. So i gues it took the desktops tty or something?. Am I even close to a solutiont ? Or am i way off :P
