Can't speak from much experience here with RH7.0, but they started the
move to full FHS compliance.  The startup scripts are quite different

I got bit by a RedHat'ism the other night on a 6.2 box ... put something
in rc2.d expecting it to run before rc3.d ... Sys V anyone?  whoops.  Argh. 
Forgot that silly binary init jumps straight to run-levels.  Oh well... 

Anyone know if they're still using the compiled binary init on x86
platforms in 7.x?  Are they still jumping up the runlevels?  I toasted
my only "play" 7.x box, so I can't check and I'm CURIOUS, darn it.  :-)
