starting processes on startup


I've installed Ninan which is a serverside java program for usenet.

I want to start the server every time I log in automatically. I could add it to my .bashrc but that would only run it when I opened a shell (and every time I opened one after that) right?

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Also, once the server is running. The address is Is there anyway I can alias this to just be "ninan"?

You could put it in profile and that would only load it once.

it is in /etc/profile or similar depending on your distro

Is there no way to alias the server address to something shorter?
