rc.boot is obsolete in Debian, rc.S must be used instead.
Anyway, imho a masquerading script does not necessarily need to be
executed rc.S. At least, you would not be able to switch between
firewall / non-firewall config via runlevels, if you chose that option.
Actually, it seems that it very much depends on your setup how your
"firewall script" should be employed.
o If it does not depend on anything else, I think its best to add a
local script (the /etc/init.d/local-firewall start stop kind), and
activate it either via ifup or init, as already suggested.
o If it does depend on the current situations (e.g. ppp link), I
think ipmasq.deb might be a good choice (but you *really* must have a
look at the default conf as it is very liberal. You could, however,
just remove the whole default config, and put your old script to
/etc/ipmasq/rules/00firewall.rul, as I did ;)).
