mac os x installer - startup folder problem

I have 2008 standard version. according to the documentation, there is a magic folder $STARTUP$ for win/mac os "startup", which will put alias where it will automatically startup the application the alias points to. on the mac you can see automatically starting items in preferences:accounts:login items. This is not working for me. I can install the application, and start it manually in the terminal.
thanks,
blake

the solution is to use launchd by creating and installing a plist file in $unix-user-home$/Library/LaunchAgents, the plist file calls the script that starts the service.

http://developer.apple.com/macosx/launchd.html

InstallAnywhere settings for plist file - check override permissions, enter "644"
