where you can find a good example including explanation
For example, random.init has these three lines: # chkconfig: 2345 20 80 # description: Saves and restores system entropy pool for \ # higher quality random number generation. This says that the random script should be started in levels 2, 3, 4, and 5, that its start priority should be 20, and that its stop priority should be 80. You should be able to figure out what the description says; the \ causes the line to be continued. The extra space in front of the line is ignored.
