I've successfully instlled CF8 on Ubuntu and now I'm tying to add a startup script to make it auto start whn the server is restarted.

I followed the instructions in Matt woodwards blog on this subject to the t, changing  path/ file names where appropriate and have double and triple checked it.

the actual code in the startup script is attached

When I list out the contents of the rc2.d folder I get the coldfusion links appearing red with three dots at the start of the path when all the other sym-links are in blue with two dots. (See attached screenshot) What does this mean? why doesn't the coldfusion server start on hardware re-boot? any ideas?

case "$1" in
/opt/coldfusion8/bin/coldfusion start
/opt/coldfusion8/bin/coldfusion stop
