I read this morning that I need to add a script to /etc/init.d for pump. Also I understand that I would need to create a link from that script to a file in my /etc/rc3.d/ directory, since I boot into run level 3.

Thank you!! I used your instructions, and I only had to tweak one thing to make it work. I had to change the file permissions on /etc/init.d/pump to match the permissions on the other files in /etc/init.d. (chmod 755 ...) That did it!

I'll say it again, for the second time today ... debian rules!
