That's essentially what I was trying to do.  The documentation 
is very good on explaining what options are there, but no 
recommendation on which is the best way.  I wasn't sure if 
running cfservd at startup was best, or cfexecd.  Once I get past 
that, I'll have a little easier time.

I'm just having a hard time letting go of the 
/etc/init.d/<processname> (in this case cfenvd or cfservd) mentality 
to managing the process for cfengine.

Is it normal to feel this confused about cfengine?  Probably not, as 
I'm working on just a few hours of sleep after staying up my 
my sick daughter...
