start a daemon script at startup


I have a centos webserver, with a chat program that uses a complied c daemon. I have to start it by hand every time i reboot by going to the path
/home/user/data/daemon

and then typing ./daemon

thats all, no config or additional params necessary.

I want this daemon script to start automatically at server startup, but I can't figure out how. Ive added the following line to rc.local but it doesn't work

/home/user/data/daemon/daemon

so what am I doing wrong, and how can i get it to load at startup?

thanks

"Ive added the following line to rc.local but it doesn't work"

What distribution are you using? Not all distributions use rc.local as the place for user startup scripts.
