Starting the Rsync Daemon (rsyncd) on boot

rsync --daemon

I am little fuzzy on configuring services in Ubuntu.

The rsyncd sevice is nowhere to be found in the Administration tools as far as I can tell and I don't know how to add it to the applet, if I can.

I have tried starting it on boot with the appropriate entries in both rc.local and inetd.conf.  I just realized I spelled it wrong in rc.local, maybe that will work.  Anyway, I would to find some good information on configuring and starting services such as rsycnd in Ubuntu.  I did find the script for starting rsync and like I said, it does work as I can start it from a terminal session without any problems or errors with the command above and it works great.

Would appreciate any light that could be shed on this.  I even did a search on the wiki but pretty much came up empty handed.
