Running smsd in the background (automatically start it on system boot)

I have installed gnokii software and is working fine.
It have a database in mysql, where it create two tables for inbox and outbox.
Now if i want to receive sms or send sms, i have to run the following line in terminal and the daemon will run until you want and by ctrl+C exit from that line. But it will still run.

/usr/local/bin/ smsd --user dbUser --password abcPawd --host localhost  --module mysql
Now the case is if i close terminal it will be stopped and no more sms send and receive.
So how can i run this daemon when sytem at startup forever without terminal, Any ideas to do this.

Put a NOHUP at the start of the command, that should do it.
