How to make firewire setup permanent

Using Debian sarge.

Every time my machine is rebooted, I need to make the 2 following changes in order to capture video from my camcorder:
/bin/mknod -m 600 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0
/bin/chown user:user /dev/raw1394
1) Why do I have to repeat these two line after every reboot?

2) How do I have these lines executed automatically on startup?

Put those lines in a shell script, make it executable, and call it up during boot from the local start script. Not sure what it's called in Debian, but should be something like /etc/rc.d/local or /etc/init.d/local something like that.
