Normally you can put your script inside

/etc/rc.local

That will cause it to execute at run time.

However, you are using a command that is to change user.  This would not work this way.


Can you elaborate what exactly are you trying to achieve?

You can either edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and put the command directly in there, or you can call the script name from rc.local

So either put in:

/path/to/command <command arguments>

or put in:

/usr/local/bin/myscript

(example name above, and be sure you make it excecutable by doing chmod 755)
