I need to make a script run under my username each time the computer boots up. I have been told that the file I need is in the /etc/init.d/ directory but that's all I know. This script will not be service I shouldn't have to mess with all the 'S' , 'K', & rc crap. Any ideas?

All your link does is take me to the top of the page.

If you want a script or command to run at boot, but not be a service, then it is intended that you add it to the /etc/rc.local script. I do that to start openvpn connections on boot, for example.
