How to run fancontrol automatically?

ok, I rebooted.. still nothing.
I checked the folders again (init.d)
and I noticed that the other files all are shell scripts or so, while 
fancontrol is a text file. (different icon and all)

btw this is the content of fancontrol:
FCFANS= hwmon1/device/pwm2=hwmon1/device/fan2_input
looks more like a config than a script to me, but what do I know :P

I made all this with the howto's in these forum posts:
(in case that might help)

so I removed fancontrol from init.d (it's still in /etc/) and I 
"update-rc fancontrol remove" the links.
Up for a fresh start then..
