[Nottingham] Redhat Init

I'm trying to get a program to run from boot on a
Redhat 8.0 system. I've placed symlinks labelled
S99<appname> in rc3.d and rc5.d to a script that runs
it in init.d. I havn't made the program a proper
daemon (detaching from a controlling terminal,
forking). Would this prevent it running properly from
init scripts?
