Unhappy Squid Problem!!! How to startup on boot...

GooDay.... I'm having problems with my RH9, i tried installing the latest version of Squid. everything went well the Squid is actually working perfectly. But when i tried making it run upon startup of the computer, i found myself lost... there's a script so that it could be run to be part of initrd.. but i can't seem to understand the procedures... can anybody help me with this????

Squid does dns lookup at startup, and it will not start if network is unreachable.
There is a command line parameter disabling this. See the squid manual.
However, I prefer to start squid not at boot-up, but at 'network up' (calling from my ip-up script).

I tried

# chkconfig squid on
# chkconfig squid --list

But this is the message...
error reading information on service squid: No such file or directory

I installed squid manually, its not part of RH9 package... there are no squid file / directory found in the rc.d init directory...

the network is okey... i used the older version of squid and is working perfectly, when i decided to upgrade and install a new one i have to manually start it up everytime i open my computer.
