on my distribution, i don't have a rc.d folder...
but i have -> rcX.d

X -> goes from 0 to 6.... for levels execution
for more details, you can type "man init"

the init.d directory is for links... that will be created with the ln command..

In Slackware your start-scripts are located in /etc/rc.d

In Red Hat/Mandrake etc there located in /etc/rc.d/init.d and the symlinks to these are located in /etc/rc.d/rcX.d where X is the run-level.
