How To Start WebSphere at Boot Up Time

Hi All. I had a potential time disaster being a newbie today. I didn't
know certain applications needed WebSphere to run after a crash. Can
someone tell me how to start WebSphere during the startup. This is what I
manually do:
cd ..
cd opt
cd WebShere
cd AppServer
cd bin
. server1
I need this to happen automatically. Thanks in advance.

in slackware it's........../etc/rc.d/rc.local

put your commands there, like.........

/opt/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/./ server1

Websphere Expert (or close enough) Requested!

Anybody know where to start with Websphere. I got a new client starting next tuesday and they are heavy into Websphere and Java Struts. I need to get ramped up on both real quick (hey, i have 15 years IT/programming/design/consulting experience) and need someone who knows what they are talking about to give me the heads up on which Websphere product to start with and what I'm looking at getting it setup on my Slackware 10.0 installation.

Websphere Downloads

Thanks much!
