Post Startup script in PCLinux

I'm using PCLinux TR2 and I want to run a script at start-up (some iptables commands that I need). I've placed the script in init.d but I don't know what to do next.

If the script isn't to long, you can just copy and paste the commands in the script into /etc/rc.d/rc.local. If the script is long, just put this in rc.local:

cd <path to script directory>
./<script name>

rc.local is the last init script to run and it runs with root privilege like all init scripts. It's generally used to quickly add something to the init sequence and is included in most linux distros but not debian based distros.
