Suse 9.2 running tor at start up

Wondering if there is any way to make Tor (eff) run at boot up i found some stuff on boot script's and it looks hard and loooong. Is there an easier way to do this. (like stick it in an .sh)?

Thanks in advance,

It depends what runlevel you want it to start at. Go into 'file manager - super user mode' ( k menu > system > file manager > file manager - super user mode).

Navigate to /etc/init.d/

within this folder find the runlevel (possibly rc5.d, this is when the graphics server starts on suse systems)

If you are using konqueror press F4 to get a konsole window up and you should see

<machineName>:/etc/init.d/rc5.d #

at this prompt type

ln /path/to/program/you/want/to/boot programName

A pointless example would be to run ifconfig

ln /sbin/ifconfig ifconfig
If you are unsure where the program you want to start is located type

whereis ifconfig
This should tell you where the program is located. Hope this is of help
