That should have been "natural" instead of "usual". There is no usual 
place for the boot scripts, it seems. SuSE uses /sbin/init.d, Halloween 
uses /etc/rc.d/init.d and LFS uses /etc/init.d.

Anyway, I think that /sbin would be the *natural* choice because scripts 
are executables and executables don't go into /etc.


I am Pentium of Borg. Precision is futile.
Prepare to be approximated!
