running commands at startup

Hi guys,

Im new to linux. Just installed it this weekend. My Logitech WingMan RumblePad wasnt working so I went searching around on the net to try and find a solution. I came across this website which told me to do this.

$ su -
# rmmod hid
# modprobe joydev
# modprobe hid

This works great but it wont let me run rmmod or modprobe even when i enter the super user password it gives me command not found . I have to logout and log back in as root to do it. Then logout and back in as a regular user. I have to do this every time i boot up to use my joystick. I guess my real question is how do I make it so it does this at startup.

Im running redhat 9

thanks for any help
