What init system are you using on your server?  I'm running upstart on
my ubuntu server and the configuration is trivial.  My celeryd startup
script follows, which you might be interested in.  Even with sysvinit,
it should not be too complicated, other than the standard boilerplate.
Take a look at the start-stop-daemon utility if you're running debian.
