I am using PCQ Kppp needs to create a virtual link tp /dev/modem the link that the modem driver created was something else I am now creating the link by runing the command each time(I made an icon for that) how can I add that in the startup? Another provlem is that the modem needs to be loades eachtime can I make the module to run at the startup. Now I have to keep the terminal open. If I close the terminal the driver is unloaded

nohup /path/to/command-to-load driver &

After closing terminal command will run in background

Better way is to configure it in /etc/modules.conf and make changes in /etc/rc.local to load driver each time linux comes up.

The idea of nohup was excellent but it is not working for me. I tried entering nohup slmodemd to file:/etc/rc.d/rc.local but when the command is executed the pc stops booting. Ithink the problem is that the command nohup itself has to be closed. Any Idea of tweaking it??

nohup used from commad line and not from script if you wanna use it from script then use following and you are done:
/path/to/script &
