I think you just have to look at different exemples of scripts in 
init.d/ to understand how to make one. Basically, a simple switch/case 
statement that handles start|stop|restart could be enough.

To make a software stay alive after an exit of the owner, you should 
call it with 'nohup':

# nohup squeak -nodisplay myImage.image
