starting application at boot time

I have an app that I want to run at startup. I added it by the command insserv.
This application reads the computer's IP eth0 point and using it.
The problem is the application started before the IP points eth0 is set, which causes the application to shut down.
My question is: how to run the application only after eth0 initialized ?

Look to 'man insserv'. You can place LSB info at the begin of your init script and to configure order of executing for your service.
You can use 'update-rc.d' to setup this order by manually also.
