You install it via yum, and at that point it is actually configured.
A proper config file is already in /etc/denyhosts.cfg, although you
can of course tweak it.  And there's no need to copy anything into
/etc/init.d, because it's already set up.

So the procedure is just:

yum install denyhosts
(edit /etc/denyhosts.cfg to your liking)
chkconfig denyhosts on
service denyhosts start

If you prefer to run denyhosts from cron instead of as a daemon, you
can edit /etc/sysconfig/denyhosts and follow the instructions there.
Other info related to the Fedora package is in

Thanks Jason for the correction.
But, strange, I don't have /etc/denyhosts.cfg.

rpm -qa | grep denyhosts

Also the initscript is not installed too.
That's why I set it up manually then.

That'll be because you've got the rpmforge version of the package rather than the Fedora Extras one.
