sendmail start up script

Hi there,
I am hoping to using my own sendmail compiled server. I need to start my sendmail demon as mail queue runner and as well as smtp demon on each startup of my linux (CentOS5) machine. Manully I start those by issuing
/usr/sbin/sendmail L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m
/usr/sbin/sendmail L sm-mta bd q1h
commands in the shell.
Is there any shell script that helps to start this automatically as other services. How can I add thos to rc.d ?
Pls give suggestions form me.
