These services usually come with a start and shutdown script located in a run level directory, which sources a variable that is set in a rc directory usually under /etc - set the relevant flag in this file to allow them to startup on boot (usually means changing flag for service from 0 to 1).

Regards.

In Linux you can use chkconfig .
This is a simple command-line tool for maintaining runlevel information for system services.
man chkconfig for info

If you don't have a startup script in 'init.d' for any program you can just create it by examining other startup files in 'init.d' and then make a link from 'rcx.d' (where 'x' is runlevel number) .

Another way is to just put the program path in rc.local file. But this will make program to run in all runlevel.
