--> If the daemon does not need anything else to be up (like network), 
you can put the commands into /etc/init.d/boot.local

If it needs the network or any other services, you have to create a 
script in /etc/init.d
Take /etc/init.d/sshd as example and create your own script 
"mystart.local" (you can choose whatever name you like). The commands 
for starting need to be in the "start" branch of the case-statement.
Run "insserv mystart.local" as root to include it in the start-up 

Commands to stop the daemon can be put into "halt.local" or into the 
"stop" branch of the case-statement in "mystart.local".
