You can also use the numeric equivalents. I forget them all but a man
kill should lead you down the primrose path to total confusion! :-)

I would suggest a look at /etc/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/rc.local might do.
However, it runs late and so you may need to generate an init script,
stick it in /etc/rc/init.d and provide an appropriately named symlink.
If you choose this method, read up on chkconfig et al.
