Actually one is usually distributed with condor. Look in the
'examples' directory, which is usually found in the 'etc'
directory of your Condor installation.

The file is condor.boot. We simply copy that to
/etc/init.d/condor and then run chkconfig as apropriate.

Root usually.

See section 3.2.3 of the manual where this is discussed

Again see section 3.2.3. Usually the installation is done as
root, and then some directories end up being owned by 'condor'

I recommend doing the installation as root if at all possible.
