Another possibility is to use daemontools. It installs a signal inittab
entry and handles logging etc. It seems to me that a mechanism like it
would be a good addition to fedora, as sysvinit scripts are a decidedly
unconvenient way to add a service sometimes. Think of that must-have
counter-strike server, etc :)

Heres it's home page

I've got some srpms made up that work under rh9 / fedora at
