Make a script called foo that takes the arguments start, stop and restart. Put it in the directory /etc/init.d/

Here I'm assuming that your default runlevel is 2 (Debian and I guess Ubuntu default), so make a link:
Code:
ln -s /etc/init.d/foo /etc/rc2.d/S99foo
At boot time this script will be called with the "start" argument, at shutdown with the "stop" argument. Have a look at the other scripts in /etc/init.d/ and google for inspiration.

Cheers,

Evo2.

The boot script system varies from distro to distro. In a system using /etc/init.d/ and /etc/rc[0-6S].d/ directories it is the K* symlinks that are run with the "stop" argument during shutdown. Which distro are you using?
