Put the file in /etc/init.d (copy /etc/init.d/skeleton if you need
to; it should have a somewhat similar structure to that file). Then
make links from there to /etc/rcS.d or /etc/rc.d, naming the
file appropriately for where you want your script to run. See the
documentation in /usr/share/doc/sysvinit for more details.
