Editing Shutdown Script

Hi....I am a linux newbie.....

I have RedHat Linux 8.0 and KDE.

I want to edit my shutdown script as during the boot sequence, I am running a shell script to load the sound and TV Tuner modules. I would like to unload these modules in the shutdown script itself. However, I dont know which is the file that contains the shutdown instructions in RedHat 8.0.

I noticed a shutdown file, however, when i tried to open it using KWrite, it displayes junk characters.

Can anyone let me know the file in which i can place the instructions to unload ths sound and tv tuner drivers? Pls help

Maybe this will point you in the right direction...

You can look at the init scripts in /etc/init.d and make one for you TV stuff. Then you can also look at 'man chkconifg' and check out the -add option to add your script to the startup/shutdown sequence. 'man init' may help as well.

I hope this helps. I know that alot of people write custom scripts like this for Oracle startup/shutdown, so maybe you can look for some info about that on google.
