bash-2,00$ cat kontroll 
if ps auxwwww|grep 'mroos.*rc5des'|grep -v grep>/dev/null
  exit 0
  echo Starting
  cd /home/mroos/rc5
  ./rc5des -quiet 2>/dev/null &
  ./rc5des -quiet 2>/dev/null &

bash-2,00$ crontab -l
0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/mroos/rc5/kontroll

This checks the process every 10 minutes - often enough for uptimes of
AIX :) For linux, there's a possibility to write
@reboot /home/mroos/rc5/kontroll
to crontab and then the program starts with crond on reboot.
