I checked on my system with dpkg -S /etc/init.d/network and it didn't
come up with something. Try this also and if the result is negative i
would remove it (after making a backup somewhere to be sure).

I've put mine in /etc/init.d. I already had an iptables script and i
"converted" it to look like the skeleton sample in /etc/init.d
I then installed it in the runlevels i wanted with update-rc.d
man update-rc.d contains a sample line.

This way, your script will be loaded in the runlevels you want.
Of course, you do not have to make the script like the skeleton sample
but it's a nice exercise :-)

Kind regards,
