Autodir can be installed from rpms as,
# rpm -ivh autodir-0.28-4.i386.rpm
When installed from rpms, two startup scripts are provided namely /etc/rc.d/init.d/autohome and /etc/rc.d/init.d/autogroup. One for starting Autodir with autohome module and another for starting with autogroup module.
Script configuration files /etc/sysconfig/autohome, /etc/sysconfig/autogroup can be used to specify what options can be passed to Autodir.
