Manually Configuring Runlevels

I need to make sure that the vsftp daemon in Fedora is running in runlevels 3, 4, and 5 on all future restarts of my linux box. I need to do this from the command terminal without using chkconfig, system-config-services or nysysv.

My goal is to configure Fedora so that the daemon will be running at the target runlevels the next time the computer restarts.

I am trying to use

but I am totally lost. can someone point me in the right direction.

Please help.

what run level is it starting at now?

scripts begining with K kill the service. One begining with S start it.

i am not familiar with your distro, but you need to create a sysbolic link from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d to wherever your programmes init.d script is. /etc/init.d??

anyway, the numbers are the order that htings happen in so, S99somedaemon gets started before S500someotherthing.
