Question SuSe and Satellite connection

Ok lets try this, I'm using SuSe 9 pro as a client machine,(backoffice) I have a windows machine connected to a direcway satellite dw 4000 two way system as the host, my problem is browsing is soo slow, has a setting to substantially speed things up. it asks to place the following in /etc/rc.local or /etc/boot.local depending on your linux distro:
echo 224360>> /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default
echo 224360>> /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_max
echo 64>>/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_default_tt1
echo 0>>/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamp
echo 1>>/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_sack
echo 1>>/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
ipconfig eth0 mtu 1460

here is my problem I have no idea where to find these setting. i've looked and just cannot find it. ANY HELP and direct instructions on getting there and changing these setting will change my way of computing of any other suggestions
thank you

The line

echo 224360 >> /proc/sys/net/core/rmem_default

is simply adding that value to the file specified.

You can type each of those lines at the command line and they should do it.
I have never seen the double >> like that before, usually I see just one > .

Alternatively you could open each of those files and change the value to the one echoed by the commands above.

You should REALLY look into upgrading to the DW6000. I have one attached to my SuSE9 gateway/server and it rules. No Windows, no software, just a simple router to connect (no USB). It is the only way to fly...
