[Mono-list] Getting a service to start automatically

Actually, crontab is available on every Linux distro.
And I prefer crontab over the init process because you can monitor your 
server this way.

For example you could do a script that executes everyday and checks the 
status of the server process.
If the server process is not running, the script can start it.
And we can get a little wild here and have a rule like ... if the server 
process takes too many resources, the script should restart it.

And you don't have to write special scripts like in the case of the init 
For starters just write a sh file where you place the command you give 
to launch your application, and that's it.
