You can have init start it with an init script. The easiest way would most likely google "Asterisk init ubuntu" or some such query and get acopy 
of that script, but you could also simply copy an existing init script and and modify it accordingly. Then you need to create "Start" links in 
the runlevel directories for which you want it to start, and "Kill" links in all other runlevel directories.

If this to too vague or you need more help, let me know.
