Starting Internet Connection at Startup

I am using SuSE 8 and i have a internet connection up i can connect using the cinternet -start command but only as the root user how can this command be run at Startup so all users can access the internet without me making to manually enter the command. i know its something to do with scripts but i dont know where to put it or what to put in it.

Thanks a bunch

Create a starting script and put it into directory e.g. /etc/init.d/boot.local, such that it will auto-start when the machine is booting.

/usr/bin/cinternet -start

Hope that will help ;-)

Have fun :-)
