You hit that one on the head. Was used to hybrid-6 and logging in
as a normal user to start it up. Logged on as root and ran it and
started just fine. Should I expect that this script will now execute
the server on boot or will I need to add anything else to the BSD
files to accomplish?

BTW thanks for the tip :)
