Of course you have! Anyway, you can safely use the sysvinit-scripts package from salix: http://download.salixos.org/i486/13....oarch-15gv.txz
it already has support for slim.

UPDATE!

Absolute-Lite-13.0.8-rc1 is alive!

I'm gonna upload it tonight
352MB iso, installed size of about 1.9GB
much less than the reg iso installed size of 3.7GB

So, I have installed it into my lappy
my lappy

Toshiba 7000CT Portege 266mhz Pentium II 160mb ram 4GB HDD NO CDROM Floppy USB(not bootable-had to use Plop*)

I stripped out bluez, wireless stuff etc from lappy iso as it doesnt need it and got it to 1.7GB installed

anyway, I will announce it in morning
heres a screen shot of my absolute-lite-iso after install to lappy
