Put it in your startup scripts, I'm sure there is some graphical
tool which helps you with this in SuSe, if not, place those rows in
/etc/rc.d/rc.local (if that file exists that is)
And pleeease, stop cross posting. This is very annoying, what if
I discover someone gave you the exact same answer in any of the
other newsgroups you posted to, then the time I've spent helping you,
would be in vain.
