Question httpd service - automatic startup

I have installed OpenSUSE 10, and i have decided not to use the apache bundled with the Linux Distribution, and successfully compiled Apache 2.0.55 that i have downloaded in .tgz format.

The server works, but i need to start it manually through the ./usr/local/apache2/apachectl -k start command, and i need this service to be started at boot.

Is there a way to set up a init.d script that does that for me, and how can i do it.

Dear all,
You should be able to just add the command ./usr/local/apache2/apachectl -k start to /etc/init.d/boot.local.

Hope this helps
