I concour with Scott.  I've got a Redhat Ent.4 box, and the MailScanner 
script lives in /etc/init.d and does my basic boot start.
I've since then cooked up a simple bash script that does a sendmail 
cf->mc compile, restarts my greylist-milter, and restarts MailScaner all 
in short order.  Saves on th key strokes, and I don't forget any steps. ;)

You should plop in a copy of the MailScanner script into your 
/etc/init.d folder and try it. Nab an official copy off the tarball 
would be quick and easy.
