If your machine has /etc/inittab, run it from that.

cs:3:respawn:/usr/local/squid/bin/ < /dev/null >> /tmp/squid.log 2>&1


cd /usr/local/squid
umask 022
/usr/bin/tail -20 logs/cache.log \
  | /usr/bin/Mail -s "Squid restart on `hostname` at `date`" $notify
sleep 10
while [ -f /tmp/nosquid ]; do
        sleep 1
exec /usr/bin/su nobody -c "exec squid -C >> squid.out 2>&1"
