How do I add programs to startup on a Redhat Linux 7.2 machine?

Actually it's fairly simple. You'll just need to create a symbolic link in the appropriate run level.

Assuming you are booting up into an X environment, that's runlevel 5 on your RH box.

So, in the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory, you'll create a symbolic link to the file that you want to run like this:

ln -s [full or relative path to the file you want to run] [name of link that will show in rc5.d directory]

Starting

Ok, here's the problem....
I'm trying to host a mud off of my computer, and when I start it, I need to be in the area directory and type "../src/dystopia 4000" to get it to work, any idea on how to make it work like that on startup?

just add whatever lines you feel like to /etc/rc.local
