Do you have the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/{auth2,codasrv,update}.init in
your machine ? (If no, get them from coda-src/scripts.  And I assume
you have the file /vice/srv.conf, which defines the rvm parameters, in
place already).

Then you should have symlinks in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ (and possibly
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/), for example,

  S71auth2 -> ../init.d/auth2.init
  S72update -> ../init.d/update.init
  S73codasrv -> ../init.d/codasrv.init

that tell the SysV Init to start the services at the right time.
(Read, for example, RH manual 11.11.2 "System V Init" for more
discussion about the SysV Init process).

Hope this help.
