Solaris has different "rc" scripts for the runlevels. We use a unified
/etc/init.d/rc script with an argument indicating the runlevel. Solaris
uses /etc/rc0, /etc/rc1, /etc/rc2 etc.
Those scripts run the stuff in their /etc/rc?.d and then do some more
stuff. For example /etc/rc0 unmounts all filesystems after the /etc/rc0.d
scripts have run.
I think our way is much cleaner than that.. even though we do have
a seperate /etc/init.d/rcS script. That probably wouldn't have been nessecary.
