No, never modify /System unless you have a VERY good reason to do so.

There is a /Library/StartupItems folder, USE IT. Always modify the least
important of two files, if any of the two modifications may be used.

Actually, there might NOT be a /Library/StartupItems folder. Especially if you have a clean install of the OS. No to worry though, just create one with that name and you're good to go.

Sorry for not mentioning this in the hint.

Either create the folder in the Finder or do:
mkdir /Library/StartupItems

in the terminal.


Regards,
John
