The simplest way is to put your commands in:

/etc/init.d/boot.local

It does the same what /etc/rc.d/rc.local in RedHat does.

Re: how to run some commands automatically before getting login prompt in suse linux

on SUSE, another simplest and 100% working solution is to create a file "after.local" under /etc/init.d/ .. then put your commands in /etc/init.d/after.local
