This link describes the use of 'Automatic Execution Stored Procedures'
than may fit the bill for what you are looking for.

Put it in a stored procedure and mark the proc as an autostart proc
(sp_procoption).

Actually, one can claim that your alternative, Ekrem, is a cleaner
solution than mine. I.e., it
might feel better to have a client app (Agent) execute whatever TSQL
commands you want to run
instead of the database engine. (Of course, if one only start the
engine and not Agent, then the
script will not be executed.)

Good thinking. :-)

Alternatively you can create a job to run your stuff which starts when SQL Server Agent starts...
(may not be as good as Tibor's suggestion :) but I already said, it's just an alternative)

Thank you so much for your feedback!
So how exactly would I set up the script to run when the Agent
starts?

Create an Agent job with one or several job steps containing your TSQL
(or whatever) code. Schedule
this job to be executed when Agent starts.
