You can add a call to your script to the file /etc/rc.local file, or use the Mac OS X specific SystemStarter mechanism, placing a script in /Library/StartupItems.  For more details, see the site below, particularly the three sections "System Initialization", "The rc.boot and rc Scripts
", and "Startup Items" :
