If there are valid rc links and an init script with at least start and stop options, then use chkconfig

chkconfig --list servicename
chkconfig servicename on
chkconfig servicename off

Open in new window

You can use chkconfig or serviceconf (GUI).

To turn on MySQL service on boot:

chkconfig mysqld on

Or show all configured services":

chkconfig --list
