Note that it's generally a bad idea to modify a system file
like /etc/rc.  By doing so, you condemn yourself to fixing the file
every time an update comes out.  That can be a pain in the rear,
especially if you maintain multiple machines.

Better to use modify rc.local (for late start) or add a script
to /etc/sysconfig/modules (for early start).  Those are there precisely
to deal with customized startup actions and they won't break when
initscripts get updated.
