How to run commands in Startup using KDE at RH8

Postby Khalid Umer » Thu Jan 09, 2003 12:16 pm

Dear Fellows,

I have installed Red Hat Linux 8 with KDE. This station needs to access data from a NT4 Server using SAMBA. I have done all the SAMBA config work. I am using SMBMOUNT command for SAMBA on terminal. Now I want to autorun this command at startup.

Is there any thing like AUTOEXEC.BAT file in DOS/WINDOWS

Please help.....

edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local

and paste the command to mount your NT share.
Save the file on exit.

rc.local is read at startup in any linux distribution.
