Autodir can be installed from rpms as follows:
# rpm -ivh autodir-0.28-4.i386.rpm
When installed from rpms, two startup scripts are provided: /etc/rc.d/init.d/autohome and /etc/rc.d/init.d/autogroup. The first one is for starting Autodir with the autohome module, the second for starting with the autogroup module.
The script configuration files /etc/sysconfig/autohome and /etc/sysconfig/autogroup can be used to specify what options can be passed to Autodir.
