Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I hope someone can help, as I have scoured google, and the forum but can't really find the answer I am looking for. I have recently installed clamav on my Red Hat 8.0 system and it runs like a champ. HOWEVER I want to enable this at boot time. I have added a script to the /etc/init.d directory, but I don't get how to get it recognized so that it A. starts a boot, and B. gets seen in the "Services" config tool in RH. There is a step that I am missing. For reference I have included the script that I found.
# crond Start/Stop the clam antivirus daemon.
# chkconfig: 2345 90 60
# description: clamdis a standard UNIX program that scans for Viruses.
# processname: clamd
# config: /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
# pidfile: /var/lock/subsys/clamd
# Source function library.
# See how we were called.
# Source configuration
if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/$prog ] ; then
you need to make a link to this file in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/(if you boot up in text mode) or /etc/rc.d/rc5.d(if you boot up in gui)
name it something like S50clamav, where S50 is the order you want it to startup in, like S01 is the first thing to start in bootup and S99 is the last.
I've never used the redhat control panel so I don't know.
