 Run Programs (Applications) When Your Computer Starts

In Windows you can run programs when your computer starts up. How do you accomplish this under Linux (KDE)? Here is how.

Windows:
Copy a shortcut link to the application into the Startup folder in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

Linux:
Copy a link to the application into the hidden .KDE/Autostart folder in your Home directory. (You may need to select Show Hidden Files in Konqueror's View menu to allow you to see and open the hidden ".KDE" folder.)
