> /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences (or ~/Library/Preferences)

This is where preferences are stored for each individual user account, that apply to that individual account only

> /Library/Preferences

Here are preferences stored, that apply to all user accounts

Please let us know if you need more clarification on this!

It's quite some time ago I've been doing this kind of thing, in everyday life I rarely need it. If I remember correct, you need to put files in the "LaunchAgents" and Preferences for that. And create those with Plist Editor (part of Apple's developer tools). The 'launchd' process runs the scripts.

Login scripts are covered in this book, in case you're looking for a manual http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Training-Advanced-System-Administration/dp/032156314X
