at 'boot up', the only things that start are service daemons, as invoked 
from the /etc/rc.d/* stuff.    these service daemons do not have a 
console.      at user login time, when your desktop is created, the 
.profile or .bash_profile scripts in your home directory are invoked, 
and anything you want running on your desktop could be started there.
