Hi James,

Please find below a hacked-up start script. Let me know if it works.
Installation instructions (perform as root):

- Put the script in the /etc/rc.d directory, and name it "slimserver".
- Make sure the file has size 851 ("l /etc/rc.d/slimserver", check
5th column). If the size is larger, the file probably transferred
as a DOS file. Do "dos2unix /etc/rc.d/slimserver" and check again.
- Make the script executable: "chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/slimserver"
- Do a "cd /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory", and execute the following
command: "ln -s ../slimserver S99slimserver"

Now type in "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S99slimserver start", this should say
"Starting Slimserver" followed by "done", and the server should be
up and running. You can check this with "ps -ef", check for a line
with process "slimserver".
