How to start Apache and Tomcat with Linux boot

Hi to all,
I have a pretty simple question. I want to start Apache and Tomcat when my Linux machine is started. I am guessing that I would want to perform something similar to the following:

cd /gauchos1/linux90/apache/bin
./apachectl start

sleep 10

cd /gauchos1/linux90/tomcat/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29/bin

Would this be correct? In which file would I place this syntax?

If u want to run any script statements when the system startsup u could place them on "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" (The location of this file may be different, me not sure, for different distributins; this is the location of it in my redhat8.0)

if u want to start any server daemons such as apache httpd at startup, ur server installation would have already added a script in the "/etc/rc.d/init.d/" for that purpose.
u could usually start the daemon from that script (eg: /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start)
To start the daemon on a particular runtime check the "chkconfig" command. only root can run 'chkconfig'
