Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The software "my-software" normally is started as root user (from CLI). However it seems that it is not loaed during my boot. Does anybody know how this can be realised so that the software is loaded no matter who actually logs in?
Check if you got the rc.local file twice.
I found an extra one in /etc/rc.d and that was the one that was executed at boot-time.
By the way: the one in /etc did not have the execute-bit set after clean install, so I think this one is redundant...
I've been running a game server for the last year and a half under RH7.3. I recently installed new hardware, and formated th drive with RH 9. I copied my scripts over, and of course made sure they are executable. One of the things I do is run a script from rc.local.
But it will not run.
Logged in as root, I enter the exact same line as I have in the rc.local file, and it runs fine. I can even cut and paste it, and it runs. Some thing is fishy with rc.local in RH 9. I'd like to know if anyone has solved this. Or am I forgetting something?
Alternately, where else could I locate this command to make it run at boot time?
My command is:
bootup.sh runs screen which runs supervise which keeps the game server running.
