Well, you need a script and a link

My understanding is that rcS.d gets processed on boot up...

create a script  call it 

SXXpen.sh    XX is a number

make it a link to /etc/init.d directory put the script there...

run rc.update after that to get everything in sync...

Good luck



If I forgot or FUBAR something..  Someone will jump in..
This is a GREAT list...
