The linux startup script contrib/start-scripts/linux in PostgreSQL
7.1.2 can be made easier to install by adding a few comment lines:

diff /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.1.2/contrib/start-scripts/linux
> # chkconfig: 2345 98 02
> # description: PostgreSQL RDBMS
< # Or check out the chkconfig program, if you have it.
> # Or, if you have chkconfig, simply:
> # chkconfig --add postgresql

Tested on Red Hat Linux 7.1 with PostgreSQL 7.1.2.

Relevant part of the chkconfig man page:

:       Each service which should be manageable by chkconfig needs
:       two or more commented lines added to  its  init.d  script.
:       The  first line tells chkconfig what runlevels the service
:       should be started in by default, as well as the start  and
:       stop  priority  levels.  If  the  service  should  not, by
:       default, be started in any runlevels, a - should  be  used
:       in  place of the runlevels list.  The second line contains
:       a description for the service, and may be extended  across
:       multiple lines with backslash continuation.
:       For example, random.init has these three lines:
:       # chkconfig: 2345 20 80
:       # description: Saves and restores system entropy pool for \
:       #              higher quality random number generation.
:       This says that the random script should be started in lev­
:       els 2, 3, 4, and 5, that its start priority should be  20,
:       and  that  its  stop priority should be 80.  You should be
:       able to figure out what the description says; the \ causes
:       the line to be continued.  The extra space in front of the
:       line is ignored.
