According to my linux box (redhat 7.1), the inittab is read upon boot. In
that file, the line:
# System initialization.
dictates which file is executed. This controls runlevel, and what bootup
scripts are read & started upto login.
I believe that your assessment is correct.. Modifying what scripts are
called by init will allow you to make your system more SysV-ish. Just
don't accidently omit any neccessary bootup calls ;)
