Adding services to start automatically after reboot


For example samba (smb) to start automaticlly when I reboot the server.

Do I put this in profile (not sure what it is called)?

It really depends on the distribution. Each has different tools to manage which daemons start when. It is best to use the distribution's designated tool for this task rather than trying to hack something together manually.
