"I've seen this question pop up a whole lot lately... most recently, twice in 5 minutes by two different people on the message board. The question is "What's the Debian equivalent of rc.local" or "Where can I put startup commands in Debian?"
"Here's a quick step-by-step guide to one way to do this:
1. Execute this command to find your default runlevel:
cat /etc/inittab | grep initdefault
You should see a line like this:
That means [b]2[/b] is your default runleve. This may also be [b]3[/b], or rarely 4 or 5."
