But... I then I will need to "login" in order to execute the application... and what I need it's to run it as soon as the Computer turns on (like all the rc.d run levels scrtipts) but I need that the application run's as if was owned by a user different than root.

Ok, then.

Make an /etc/init.d/whatever script and put this in it:

su --login --command=application user

Look at /etc/init.d/skeleton to make a better script.
