Question Daemons Questions

I have 2 questions that i need help with???

1. you have created a deamon called mydaemon that performs database management task on the system, however, you wish to have this daemon start only in runlevel 5. What directory should you place this daemon in????? wHAT links should you create to this daemon????? Write the commands you would use to have this daemon start and stop automatically.

2. Runlevel 4 is typically not used on most linux systems. What file defines this runlevel???? How could you start daemons in this runlevel if you needed to??? What are the steps to utilize runlevel 4. It should load all daemons from runlevel 3 plus some special database daemons as well

Well.. in general, in many distributions you'd have the actual service or daemon in


you would then have a Start symlink in the corresponding run level directory ie for run level 5
