ok, a quick rundown:

sysv is the (debian default) system that uses

/etc/rc2.d (et c)
and starts and stops scripts with scripts like

the file-rc (or bsd-ish) init system has
a single /etc/init.d directory, and a single flat
file that says which services to start.

the former is arguably a little more flexible than the latter, but at
the expense of being more complicated.
