I would not recommend to use ksh (I have never tried myself). The standard shell to do this is the Bourne shell (/bin/sh).

Now, there is a series of directories in /etc called rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d, rcS.d and so on. Each directory has a series of file whose names are Knnsomething or Snnsomething.

When the machine boots, it executes the scripts begining with S in ascending order and gives the start parameter to each one of them. If you pay attention, most of these scripts are in reality links to the real thing under /etc/init.d

So you should put your script in /etc/init.d and then make a link in /etc/rc2.d pointing to your script. The link should be called Snn<something sensible> where nn is a number (choose a high one so your script executes at the end). Your script should be able to deal with the start parameter properly, but if it just executes is ok.
