Loadproc is a function in /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions.  It handles 
starting the daemon specified, and printing the fancy little [OK] 
mesage.  As a LFS user, you should be able to read the shell script and 
figure it out.  The functions file is also well commented.  Makes me 
wonder why you didn't do this in the first place
