Apparently "update-rc.d" does something essential

I thought all it did was to create symlinks with the proper prefixes in a automated way for a given script, something that one could do manually... but apparently it does something more.

But perhaps I just did something wrong when trying to do it manually, like using the wrong runlevel folders. Or perhaps it was just the difference from priority 20 to 19 that made the difference even though I thought the key was to be a higher priority (i.e., a lower number than) than 22.

Okay, so I've finally figured out that when I post in what could be called a "Newbie's" thread, that they don't seem to notice the URLs in my signature.

So I've gone from this;

--Did you find this post helpful? Don't forget to let me know by clicking yes or no! (Or click the "scales" icon under my name)
--Has a post solved your problem? Make sure to mark the thread as [SOLVED]!
--What do those little green boxes mean? It's the brand-spanking new

Posi-Rep (and/or "Helpful Post?" "Yes")
1) Providing great technical help (especially one-liners)
2) Giving out URLs, RFCs, book references, etc. Anything the OP can use for further research into their problem.
3) Correcting someone's train of thought when what...
