In a regular distro, I would copy the init script to /etc/init.d and place it in the proper runlevel folder (rc*.d) so that it would run as a service at boot, instead of manually being started by a user. However, if I remember correctly, Slack uses the BSD-style init scripts...I haven't used Slack in a while, so I can't help much with telling you how to set that part up.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
