Paul said he has no X running on the machine where he wants to configure
service starts.

Besides "chkconfig" which was already mentioned, "setup" can be used.
"chkconfig" is to be prefered as it has options to defined service
starts/stops independent from current runlevel.

Having no service start script in /etc/init.d/ because i.e. it is an own
custom service, /usr/share/doc/initscripts*/sysvinitfiles instructs
about proper init script format, especially what chkconfig needs.
