rc.boot was replaced by rcS.d. Julian was almost right; you should
put the script in /etc/init.d, but not link it with update-rc.d like
every other, only to rcS.d. Quite a few packages already do this so it
should not be too hard to find examples. I did it in cnews for example
(moved from rc.boot).
