Post How to start nautilus on startup ?

Hi,I'm using SuseLinux 9.3 with the GNOME desktop.Usually my nautilus used to be initiated during startup. Once in a while it would become stuck and i would have to type killall nautilus to restart the application,Once i got so bugged that i kept on typing killall nautilus hoping that the application would restart.But i was unsucessful in that effort and i had to restart the System.But since then,my nautilus does not start at Startup, each time i on my system, i'll have to type the nautilus command to start it.And if my nautilus gets stuck in between then killall nautilus command does not work any more and i am forced to restart the System.Can u tell me how to fix this ?

My first guess: run the command gnome-session-properties, go to the second tab, make sure nautilus is being run, with `style' set to `restart'.
