    Generally, you create a script under /etc/init.d called 'mailman' and you
soft link it to the run level:

  ln -sf /etc/init.d/mailman /etc/rc2.d/S99mailman  (for startup)
  ln -sf /etc/init.d/mailman /etc/rc6.d/S99mailman  (for shutdown)

  [ note: the latter one needs to have a 'stop' clause in the script ]

    I haven't had a chance to look at MM2.1 yet, so I don't know what this
(mailmanctl) does yet, however if it's just a script, you may want to make sure
it has the proper paths in it.  Remember that when the system starts up and
runs anything in your /etc/rc*.d directories, it doesn't have any PATH
information set.  You need to do that manually in your scripts.
