Last time I looked at the source to sysvint, both the /etc/rc?.d and 
/etc/rc.d setups were represented.

I also feel obligated to mention that I gave my copy of the Caldera
Preview II to one of my co-workers to run on his machine the moment I read
in the manual that they used the "in-between" configuration for sysvinit.

It's a shame, too, because I could actually use some of the NetWare 
administration tools.

I mean, if you want BSD, use simpleinit or something.  If you want the 
ease of use of the system V stuff, do it right.
