Hey : I'm almost a newby to Linux

Just put the command into a file that is read at boot. In Slackware anything I want run at boot I place into /etc/rc.d/rc.local or you could put the command into /etc/rc.d/rc.modules. I've never used SuSe, so I wouldn't know the equivalent file paths/names. Sorry.
