Assuming you have a Red Hat Linux release,
make sure your "mysql.server" is mode 755.

Make a symbolic link to it in /etc/rc.d/init.d

Check /etc/inittab to see what run level you are using.

I use level 3, do in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d , I make another link.
cd /etc/rd.d/init.d
ln -s /usr/local/mysql/mysql/mysql.server mysql.server
cd ../rc3.d
ln -s ../init.d/mysql.server S98mysql

Another option is to add a line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to do "/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysql.server
