Where to put mldonkey scripts?

Ok, maybe this should have gone in Newbie or Software, but its Slackware specific aswell.

I was following http:/ / and came to where it reads:

server:/home/mldonkey# cp mldonkey_init /etc/init.d/mldonkey

If you have other pathes, you have to edit /etc/init.d/mldonkey

this can be different with other distributions, I use debian!!!

Now, I don't know what the corresponding directory is under slackware, so I don't know how to continue installation. All for purely legal downloading though :-p

I would do (after reading the mldonkey_init script too see what it does):
cp mldonkey_init /etc/rc.d/rc.mldonkey
then I make sure it is executable (if not chmod +x rc.mldonkey)
Last I edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file and add :
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.mldonkey ]; then
So for any reason I wanted to not execute rc.mldonkey at boot, I simply chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.mldonkey, following slackware init script philosophy.
