Question Slackware init scripts.

I'm going to install fakeidentd which requires some modification to the Makefile. While looking through the file, I found a couple of sections about which I was unclear:

# Directory where your init scripts are.
# Is /etc/init.d in most distributions.
# Use /sbin/init.d if you run SuSE Linux.
# Use /etc/rc.d/init.d if you run RedHat Linux.

# Directory where the rc subdirectorys are (rc0.d, rc1.d, ...)
# Is /etc in most distributions.
# Use /sbin/init.d if you run SuSE Linux. 
# Use /etc/rc.d if you run RedHat Linux.
I'm pretty sure I need to change the INITD and RCD values here, but am unsure as to what they should be. I *believe* /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 is the Slack equivalent of /etc/init.d, but am not totally sure. As far as the location of "the rc subdirectories" - I'm at a loss - would that be /etc/rc.d???
