I'm not a ubuntu user. But usually, in most distribution you have a config tool and a list of services to be run at boot. You may want to had smartmontools/smartd to them.

If smartmontools/smartd is already launched at boot, you can just configure it by editing /etc/smartd.conf

If you have to had smartd starting manualy, just had its script in you boot sequence in the /etc directory.

start smartd. To get it running I have to start it from the command
line.  Is this right? And if so, what might the script be doing?  Its
