Can anyone help me out?? I need a startup script to to place in the rc.d dir so I can load an ircd using the specific ircd account I created. Ive seen some around but these do not work very well.

Simple....
replace command line with /sbin/su - ircd -c /usr/local/ircd/bin/ircd

#!/bin/sh
#
# $FreeBSD: ports/net-mgmt/arpwatch-devel/files/arpwatch.sh,v 1.9 2004/07/09 16:50:00 krion Exp $
#

# PROVIDE: arpwatch
# REQUIRE: NETWORKING SERVERS
# BEFORE: DAEMON
# KEYWORD: FreeBSD shutdown

#
# Add the following lines to /etc/rc.conf to enable arpwatch:
# arpwatch_enable (bool):     Set to "NO" by default.
#                             Set it to "YES" to enable arpwatch
# arpwatch_flags (str):       Set to "-N" by default.
#                             Extra flags passed to start command
#
. /etc/rc.subr

name="arpwatch"
rcvar=`set_rcvar`

command="/usr/local/sbin/arpwatch"

[ -z "$arpwatch_enable" ]       && arpwatch_enable="NO"
[ -z "$arpwatch_flags" ]        && arpwatch_flags="-N"

load_rc_config $name

run_rc_command "$1"
