How about showing a basic set of sysvinit scripts into the book, So that
those who dont use the package can learn and make there own svsvinit
scripts. Currently im unaware of the book a a hint that discribes how to
create a basic set for svsvinit.
The book currently explains,
When Init is run
How to change run level
How to start and stop a script manually
How to stop a script running on startup
IMO, the following sbould be added
How a basic set of boot scripts would interact.
How the scripts are called from svsvinit
How the Template works
More about the /etc/inittab
