How do I run a program at boot time before the network is st

How do I run a program when the computer is booted; the program needs to run before the network is started

Have a look down in /etc/init.d/ and the file “skeleton” then use this
file to start you program (unless it already has it’s own init file?).
In the section called ### BEGIN INIT INFO, look for Required-Start,
here change the $network to network and it will put the correct
symlinks to ensure it runs before the network is loaded.

Else you can just symlink to it in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ with a S02 prefix.
This way can get broken though if your prerequisites change, much better
to use the skeleton.
