I don't know about Ubuntu, but many distros have a "local" script that's 
run after everything else.  It's usually /etc/rc.d/rc.local.  You can 
just add the shell command above in that script, and you'll be set.

Of course, as with many things Linux, there are at least a dozen ways to 
do this. :)
