If you install both these programs from Debian packages, the rc*.d init
scripts will be configured for you automatically, and the services will
start up on boot.  You'll also be able to start, stop, reload, or
restart them with:

    # /etc/init.d/myservice start|stop|reload|restart


If this doesn't suit your fancy, take a look at /etc/init.d/skeleton and
modify it to suit your needs (copy it, *then* modify it).
