I use rsync on a couple of servers to perform automatic backups and syncronisation.

How can I start the "rsync --daemon" on linux bootup?

I havent used rsync in a long time but if I remember correctly rsync uses ssh protocol, so if sshd is started so is rsync.

Which OS?

Here is a link to do what you want in CentOS -- manage it via xinetd.  You can do the same approach with any other distro that offers xinetd.
