daemon without runlevels

Hi all,

I want to create a daemon but i don't want that daemon to start on the startup of the system. I want it to be run ondemand.That is when i run service rr start then only it should start,Not on when the system starts.
If we mention "chconfig 345" in rc script then that service will be automatically be started on the startup.

How to prevent the service to start on the system start??

Thanks in Advance.
