I'm about to go crazy. I'm trying to add *one* stinking process to my linux boot sequence, and every permutation I've tried either ends in a hung screen or just nothing. Any suggestions?

Yeah, that's the deal. Create a script in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99shoutcast or similar, which takes arguments of startup, shutdown or restart and does the appropriate things. You can probably rip off an existing simple daemon-starting script, like the sendmail one, and model it on that. There's some macros you need to wrap around daemon processes to make sure they don't block the init process and so on, that might be what's causing problems.

Thank you thank you! It's up and running. I'm so happy now!

How did you find me?

I was reading my friendsfriends page... 'cause I ran out of friends postings and was bored.

Seems to be the way that LJ grows.
