to me the easiest way to do anything like that seems to
be to set-up a .xsession file in your home directory

this is most easily accomplished by
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.gnome ~/.xsession
and then put the things you need to run on startup
in this file before the exec gonme-session call

Note: In RH the xinitrc.gnome might live in a different directory :}
but you'll probably get the idea ;}
