Ubuntu 10.4 no /etc/inittab or /etc/event.d/


I'm studying for CompTIA Linux+ and it says there should either be an /etc/inittab or /etc/event.d/ to determining which programs to run at which run level however neither exist?

Where are theses files?

Ubuntu uses upstart so there is no inittab which is part of the standard way.
