Cool Running programs at startup of system

Now Iam using Fedora Core 1 Linux and I am a Newbie.
I need help, for making a program automatically start at the system boot up. If there are more than one program that is to be started automatically at startup, is there any way for editing the stratup sequence of these programs (As we seen in Startup folder in Windows 98 etc.).

I think you mean you want to run programs when you login (like Windows startup programs), as opposed to when the system starts (like Windows system services).

To do that, go to menu: Applications->More Preferences->Sessions. Click on the tab "Startup Programs". You can specify the startup order with a number, and I suggest running your programs at position 200-250 (after all normal login programs).

Which X session are you using? I use KDE. In your home directory, there is a file called .kde and then a directory called Autostart. Place your startup programs (like xmms) in that Autostart folder. You must have hidden files viewable to see the . folders.

In GNOME, what I do is close down GNOME with the application I want to autostart (like rhythmbox) running. If your session preferences are checked to save your session on logout, then whatever apps are open on shutdown will open again when GNOME is started. Once you have GNOME the way you want it to start, go into the session preferences and uncheck the box for saving your session on logout.

I use KDE regularly, so the GNOME directions are only from my memory of months ago. The KDE directions I checked. Hope it all works out!
