/etc/rc.boot - that is, if you mean for your local system.  Packages
should use /etc/rcS.d, but the last time it came up we all agreed that
/etc/rc.boot should be local sysadmin territory.  Put a script in there
and it will be run.  I believe the order is processed in ascending ASCII
order intentionally, so plan accordingly if you need something to happen
first and something else to happen later.  This may be a side-effect of
ext2, but I don't believe so.

           something like that I guess..  Still, typecasting RH users as
           idiots or their distribution as completely broken by default
           is complete and total FUD.
