add applications to startup folder?

How do you make applications run automatically at startup? I think it has something to do with the startup folder, but dragging apps in there only moves them there.

Is there something like in windows where you can put a shortcut to the app in there?

I think this it what you are looking for:

Go to System Preferences: Accounts: Start up items. You should be able to add programs to that list specific for each account.

Don't forget you can add applescript and automator actions there too; Helpful if you do a certain 'routine' every time you start up.
