running commands at boot time (ex: amixer mute)

Alright, this is out of curiosity (and also a good reference for newbies)

What are the places you can put commands to run commands on startup, the respective init levels for that place, and whats the "right" way to do it?

You could write an rc script and put it in /etc/rc.d or if it's just one command at startup put it in /etc/rc.local.

Re: running commands at boot time (ex: amixer mute)

Just a side question since this topic is here...can that be used to actually run a normal program? There's an interesting PowerPC emulator for the x86 architecture that I found that can successfully run OSX, and I was curious that if I installed it, whether or not I could possibly boot it on startup...
