  Very vague... what service, how was it installed, configured, etc.
It sounds like you wrote or installed some script that isn't normally=20
there into init.d.

- post the script from init.d
- the command line you use to start the service

  Depending on what the services do, it's possible that they are started
too early in the boot process to start correctly.  For example if they
are started before any interfaces have been started they can't bind to=20
a specific local IP address, if they are started before /var is mounted
they are trying to log to or use files you can not see...

  Need more information.
