Just add some symbolic links as follows:

su (become root)
cd /etc/init.d/rc2.d
ln -s ../privoxy S12privoxy; ln -s ../privoxy K10privoxy

Do the same in the rc3.d and rc5.d directories too.
Then just run "sh /etc/init.d/privoxy start" to start it for the first
time. Subsequently it will automatically stop and start when
you shutdown and boot the system.
