Setting ulimit values in files on Redhat AS 2.1


I need to set a few parameters at boot time.

They need to be:
stack size (kbytes) (ulimit -s): 32768
open files (ulimit -n): 4096
max user processes (ulimit -u): 16384

I know it's possible to fool around with scripts
and/or echo commands. (Please don't bother
telling me about them, I'm trying to avoid that.)

However, I want to just set these values once in a
file, such as in Sysctl.conf:

fs.file-max = 131014

Is it possible to set these ulimit values, in a file?
What is the file? What is the secret?

Thanks a lot
