how should I start a server (for example, a web server or a ftp
server) on a linux box based on ELDK 4.1 SELF ramdisk?
One option is init, by using respawn action: in this way the server
is automatically restarted if it dies (for a bug or something else..)
The other option is a script started by init with sysinit action. In
this way the server isn't automatically restarted if it dies for any
I'd use the first solution (init), but I see that modern distribution
(like Debian or Ubuntu) doesn't use init to start servers, but uses
scripts in /etc/init.d or something similar.
