adding to KDE startup

If I wanted to add a file to start when KDE starts, where would I put a shortcut? Is there a place like Win's startup folder? I want ksmoothdock to run when I start KDE.

Also, is there a way to remove the panel upon start? I can hide it, but it's still there. Can I remove it all together?

not sure on getting "rid" of the main kde panel. i don't think you can, but maybe someone else knows better. as far as having smoothdock start, for an individual user, you can put a shortcut in that user's .kde/Autostart directory in the user's home directory -> $HOME/.kde/Autostart

where $HOME is the environment variable for a specific user's home directory -> /home/user_name
