Copy the file to the /etc/init.d/ directory and make a symlink to that file in the /etc/rc5.d/ and /etc/rc3.d/ directories.

Uhm it is distro dependent and not that simple, just symlinking doesn't work. Redhat used to have a command for that (forgot what it was), Debian does it with update-rc.d. You have to specify the base name, run levels and load priority.
