[Icecast] Starting Icecast as a service on CentOS

Hi All,
I've recently upgraded my hosting to a VPS running CentOS.
I'm trying to configure the VPS to launch Icecast as a service so that
Icecast starts if the virtual server reboots, or Icecast stops running.
I've found several scripts out there to place in my init.d folder, but
nothing seems to work for me as of yet.

Here is my Icecast2 setup:


Icecast does run fine by itself if I launch it from the command file as 
./icecast -b -c /usr/local/etc/icecast.xml

Thanks for the help
