Where is my init.d and default runtime directory

So ... i was trying to get Kmyfirewall happening on my Slackware 10.0 laptop and it complained that i am lacking an init.d folder and something about a default run time folder.

Now I work on MDK boxen and I've seen their /etc/init.d/ and /etc/rc.d/rc.*/ folders - which is what i guess this is all about. but i had never thought about what slackware does (funny ... you don't worry about things that ain't broken)

So what's the go? why did Slackware evolve without those folders? It just keeps all the info in the rc.* files right?

That shouldn't be the case.
Slackware keeps them in /etc/init.d/
Find out what you are missing, try getting them from slackware ftp or something...

These files are located in the /etc/rc.d/ folder in Slackware. Slack uses the BSD style startup flavor. (Much easier to use IMHO)
