Linux Startup Script

A somewhat Linux novice here (I know enough to be DANGEROUS!).

Anyway, I've built a little ubuntu system to work as netem device to sit in-line and add some artificial latency to a lab network for testing a specific application.

That itself was pretty straight forward.  Now, I've essentially written a script to set it up, but was wondering how I could go about kicking it off at startup.  I know this is quite basic...

What I've put together:
#NOTE eth0 is the onboard NIC.  eth2 is the USB NIC.  Setup should be          
#Clear Network info on the network interfaces
ifconfig eth0
ifconfig eth2

#Build The Bridge
 brctl addbr br0

#Disable Forward Delay
 brctl setfd br0 0

#Add Interfaces to the Bridge
 brctl addif br0 eth0
 brctl addif br0 eth2

#Enable the Bridge
 ifconfig br0 up

#Disable Kernel-level filtering
 for f in /proc/sys/net/bridge/bridge-*; do echo 0 > $f; done

#tc qdisc limits Bandwidth on outbound queuing.
tc qdisc replace dev eth0 root handle 1:0 tbf rate 768kbit burst 1536 latency 1ms
tc qdisc replace dev eth2 root handle 2:0 tbf rate 768kbit burst 1536 latency 1ms

#Adding artificial 150 ms delay/latency with 1 ms +/- variation 
#Note in this example, latency is added to both interfaces

tc qdisc add dev eth0 parent 1:1 handle 10: netem delay 75ms 1ms
tc qdisc add dev eth2 parent 2:1 handle 10: netem delay 75ms 1ms

Just to confirm, I should just put that syntax in rc.local, or do I use rc.local to poitn to this script?
Both are a possibility.
