getting a program to startup


Hello, I did some searching on the forums, but I couldnt find this anywhere, even though I know I have seen it on here somewhere. How do you make a program startup when you boot? I know there is a file somewhere you have to add the program to, but I am at a loss as to where it is.

Thanks,
Cyric

Add a line executing this program including full path to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

Full path is something like:
/usr/bin/yourprogram

This is basic linux knowledge, time to read some docs on http://www.tldp.org/ ?

try your command with full path
for example:

/usr/bin/echo blah > blah
