RPM and Debian packages?

I just realized (duh) that a good way to make it easier for a lot of
Linux people to run deschall would be to make RPM and Debian packages
that install the client along with an RC script to launch it at
startup. That way a RedHat user could just say
# rpm --install ftp://foo.bar.com/deschall.rpm
and everything would be taken care of.

Anyone know how to do this offhand? If not I'll figure out how to do
the RedHat version this weekend. It'd be a lot easier (but not
necessary) if the client itself is part of the package. Could an RPM
be added to the deschall archive?
