Forgive me for stupid questions, but how do you make programs start with bootup?

    If I want Adium and Stickies to start when I boot, what do I have to do?

    Thanks

    In System Preferences, select accounts.

    Click your user, then click the Login Items tab. (There may already be a few "invisible" items listed, like for iCal or iTunes.)

    The startup items in Mac OS X are Login Items, as every user on mac OS X can select their own startup item.

    They can be found in System Preferences >> Accounts >> Login Items.

    Just drag & drop any item to that panel. :)

    I think you can also click and hold down on an app in the dock and select open at login (with Tiger at least).
