Auto starting DHCPd on Devil Linux


Anyone using Devil Linux?
I cant find a way to get the dhcpd to stat on bootup! Most annoying!
If I've found out that the server has been rebooted/gone down etc, I have to ssh in and manually start it! :-
Code:
root@Scorpion2Gateway:~ # /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart
Stopping ISC DHCP Server daemon on eth0 ...        Not running [ ATTN ]
Starting ISC DHCP Server daemon on eth0 ...                    [  OK  ]
There is in chkconfig
Code:
chkconfig dhcpd on
-bash: chkconfig: command not found
No rc.init/rc.local

Any ideas?

Cheers, Ian.

Did you try the rc.x directories? (link the start up script in your main run level to the script in init.d)

eg: cd /etc/rcX.d && ln -s ../init.d/dhcpd S99dhcpd

(using whatever is your default run level instead of X, you can find that out in the inittab)

I only have one rc directory :-
Code:
# cd /etc/rc.d/init.d/
