I have assess to batch files and then from there to cmd and i want to run the script ipconfig /release everytime one of the computers start.

back in my day we had a little file called autoexec.bat, and it spoke with config.sys... and we liked!

If you're using the very oldskool init scripts, there's an rc.local somewhere under /etc

On more current systems, you'd create a script that does something interesting in the init.d dir that's somewhere under /etc (/etc/rc.d/init.d or /etc/init.d typically). The script will be called with either 'start' or 'stop' as parameter on startup. Check some of the scripts already present to see how they deal with this. Once your script does what needs to be done, create X99ScriptName links in the rc[0-6].d directories pointing at your script. In that X99ScriptName name, the X is either K (call script with stop) or S (call with start) and 99 is a 2-digit number that is used to specify the time at which the script is run. Lower numbers get called sooner in the booting process. The [0-6] in the rc[0-6].d directory name is one of the 7 runlevels. The scripts that are linked to in each of the directories get called when the system enters that runlevel.

Run 'man telinit' to get an explanation of what runlevels are, and at what stage which one is entered.

no i can not use the task scedualer it is disabled and it isn't even in the start menu. I can't even use the at command in command prompt. I get an "Access is denyed" label.

I tryed putting the batch files i wanted to run in the start menu, startup, and when ever i restart the computer there gone.
