You should add a script of your own to the directory
/usr/local/etc/rc.d, and have it check the first parameter to see under
what circumstances it is being invoked. If the first parameter is
"start", then the system is being started, or at least you are
requesting that your script be run as if it were starting.
I strongly recommend against adding anything to the /etc/rc script
itself. If you feel you just *can't* do it via a script in
/usr/local/etc/rc.d, which is the better way, add a script called
/etc/rc.local and that will be run after all the other start-up steps.
"man rc" for more information, man "rcorder" if you need to control
the order in which your script runs relative to other startup scripts.
