Mozilla auto-load...

In the windows version of Mozilla there's a cool little option that allows you to keep it in the systray so it loads very fast. Is there something I could add to my .xinitrc that would load all of its variables, or something to that effect? If not, that would be a cool project for someone to embark on *nudge nudge*. :-D

Looks like I came to the right place to ask this question.
I've been monitoring Linux for a couple of years now, hoping and waiting for the day I can say goodbye to Microsoft OS systems. Problem for me is that I am deep in MS Office, Point (a mortgage software), Corel, and Photoshop. As hard as I have looked at the Red Hat and other Linux sites, I see very little in the way of telling the outside public what software now operates on Linux.
Where are the applications listed, and how o I do it without spending a fortune to come over to the bright side?

Hey Scrat, have you ever heard of CrossOver Office? I just found it the other day. IT is a commercial version of WINE, with full support for many windows programs. I can run all of Office, and Photoshop under linux with CrossOver, no bugs Yet. Give it a try anyways, it's a free 30 day trial, and then after that it's $50USD
