there is a similar question at

basically you can put your command in the file

/etc/rc.d/rc.local  ( you would need root access )

You should question yourself if you want to run the program at boot time
or when you (or somebody else) login.

Or in usermode :

man 5 crontab and look for @reboot. (works in any recent and decent distribution of Linux)
