Starting a program at boot

Hello, Ubuntu users.
I need to start a program at boot time. The program has a -d switch that puts
it into daemon mode, but Ubuntu won't let me run it as root.
init: security exit, root euid
Is there a way I can disable this, or, even better, start the program at boot
(via rc.local, /etc/init.d, etc.) as a user other than root?
