Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think you can rebuild the directory but you would need another system of the same configuration to get the scripts from. I do have to ask why would you delete the init.d directory?
If you don't have another system that has the same configuration you may want to do as descarte said, and reinstall as it would take some time to get all the needed scripts back.
I do... I backed up all my VPS nodes on my server three weeks ago, the dom0 is a basic CentOS/Xen installation so very easy to rebuild .
I wonder if it would be a idea for someone to make a package called 'foolproof linux' that stops people doing crazy/stupid things like trying to delete important parts of the file system or other such bad actions, display a huge warning message about how dangerous it is. I would try it myself but I am so out of touch with programming in the past couple of years and never touched the source codes of anything related to linux yet =/.
