beware sysvinit 2.58 installation


There is a small problem with the new sysvinit (2.58-1) suite. Once you have
installed it, you can't shutdown/reboot/halt the system as these use a 
different way of communicating than the 2.57* init (a FIFO, no longer a file).
So please make copies of the old init,shutdown, halt and reboot programs and
reboot right after installing sysvinit 2.58. After rebooting, you can
delete the old files.
