starting services at boot-time

I'm trying to start httpd, mysqld and named at boot-time, but I'm not sure how. I've looked over the rc files and I'm lost there.. I could setup something for them in xinetd, but I didn't know if that's how it was supposed to be done.

This is on redhat 9, if it makes a difference.
