Try using "/sbin/chkconfig".
You should have a startup/stop script in /etc/init.d or /etc/rc.d or something.
The scripts in /etc/init.d (on my box) have a commented line at the top that tells chkconfig how to behave (ie in what runlevels the "service" needs to be started).

man init tells you more about runlevels.

Basically, what chkconfig does is verify for all services (in a configurable order) if they need to be started when the runlevel changes (ie when you boot, you typically enter a multi-user runlevel like 3 (textual boot) or 5 (graphical boot)) and start them if needed.

For instance:
/sbin/chkconfig --list
tells you which services are scheduled to be started when each of the runlevels is entered.

I dont appear to have a chkconfig file I do have /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf that contains configs for the network adapters.. But cant see anything that relates to other services starting or not.

You could put whatever command you need for the daemon to start in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Okies this looks like a plan I found that file so would the command be "/opt/kde/bin/lisa" ?

Dont realy want to try that blind so to speak as I found out that 1 duff command seems to fubar the system and when I still cant figure out the syntax to copy,move,delete and rename files at run level 3 it becomes a pain to try and fix lol

This would work too (just put it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local)

Code:
if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/lisa ]; then
echo "Starting LiSa daemon"
/opt/kde/bin/lisa
fi
Checks if the lisa daemon is executable and then starts it

To edit the file in runlevel 3, run as root;

# pico /etc/rc.d/rc.local

edit it then do Ctrl-X to exit and "y" to save it.

Run

# /etc/rc.d/rc.local restart

to check that it works
