Which distros use BSD-style layout for initialization files, and which System V's?
 
So far I know Slackware uses BSD-style.
And I think Ubuntu and Debian use System V's.
Can you tell me about other distros?
Thanks.

Most of them are sysV.
Slackware and it's derivatives are BSD like.

I think when building LFS you have a choice between both types of boot scripts.

Well what? Slackware is your best choice most likely. It's been claimed by most to to be the "most" unix like Linux distribution.

As someone said before "My distribution is in all ways superior to yours...", so in this case - I'd vote for ArchLinux. It also has BSD style init (as does Gentoo and Slackware), but it also has cool source/binary package management and it is easy to build Arch packages by yourself. Arch also uses the same philosophy as Slackware - KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid).
