    You can do this using yast, it is under the services page if I remember correctly. Alternately you can run:

    cd /etc/rc3.d/ && ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql S40mysql && cd ../rc4.d/ && ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql S40mysql && cd ../rc5.d && ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql S40mysql

    That should handle what you need it to do. If you want to be complete, you can add the K35mysql into rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d, and rc6.d.

    That should do it.

    Best,

    sorry very new to linux, used to windows due to software not being tailored for it, but we made the move after SP2.

    And to answer your question: the rc1, rc2, etc directories are all part of the SysV init process. There is a process (init) that calls /etc/rc.init usually, which then figures out what 'runlevel' you want to enter. It will then run through /etc/rc1.d to see what to start in that runlevel. It will then step through the scripts in /etc/rc2.d, rc3.d, etc. until it hits the runlevel you requested (which is usually 5).

    There are other different ways of initting a linux machine, but the SysV style is by far the most widely used.

    Best,
