Basic question how do I make a program load on startup. I have just installed an FTP server, IRCd and DCSd on the linux box and wish to make them start on bootup but DrakX Services doesnt work. I am running mandrake 9.0 Help please

To make something load on startup you put it in your /etc/rc.d folder, probably in a file similarly named to rc.local.
