I was about to boot it up to check, but plugged in my notebook's 19V PS,
instead of the correct 12V, and now the power distribution board is dead. :(
But it was pretty low in the boot order, not S01, but pretty low.

I'm mostly wondering about things I can pull out of rc2.d and rcS.d that
aren't really needed for a simple box like this.
