Can anyone tell me how to get monit to start at boot on Suse SLED 10 ?

Suse seems to do services different than everyone else. I found a link to a monit init file, but I don't think it will work out of the box.

Have you used 'yast' to adjust your startup configuration? Does it appear in that list?

Monit is not in any repos I can use. I have installed monit from source. – macarthy Jul 25 '11 at 4:43
Have you moved the startup configuration file which should come with the source distribution into the /etc/init.d directory? – – mdpc Jul 25 '11 at 5:58
I have a config file in there, that I pulled from OpenSuse, I'm going to try to modify it and getting up and working – macarthy Jul 26 '11 at 6:50
