-An rc.d script is included in share/ar_sendmail.
+For Linux both script and demo config files are in share/linux.
+See ar_sendmail.conf for setting up your config. Copy the ar_sendmail file
+to /etc/init.d/ and make it executable. Then for Debian based distros run
+'sudo update-rc.d ar_sendmail defaults' and it should work. Make sure you have
+the config file /etc/ar_sendmail.conf in place before starting.
+For FreeBSD or NetBSD script is share/bsd/ar_sendmail. This is old and does not
+support the config file unless someone wants to submit a patch.
