And the init scripts can have a header in them giving the default
settings for chkconfig.  It looks like this:

# chkconfig: 2345 55 25

This line (taken from sshd) says that this service should run in run
levels 2, 3, 4, and 5 with a start priority of 55 and a stop priority of 25.

If the service doesn't have any links in the rc*.d directories yet,
'chkconfig --add svcname' will create the start and stop links based on
the chkconfig line in the script file.
