I would use the 'update-rc.d' tool to add the correct symlinks (put  
the script in /etc/init.d).

So if you script is called firewall and it's in /etc/init.d run:

'update-rc.d firewall defaults'

This should then create the required start/stop symlinks.

I use 'defaults' here ..... if you want to pick the specific runlevels  
the script gets called on then check the man page for update-rc.d
