Try to put this in /etc/rc.local
You can also put it in /etc/rc3.d (if your server starts in Run level 3) or /etc/rc5.d (if it starts up the GUI mode on startup)
Only thing you would have to do though would be to create a soft link to your script from here.

If in /etc/rc3.d
then do this -
cd /etc/rc3.d
ln -s /home/user/startupscript.sh S99Startme
