I was just wondering how you defined 2 3 4 5. I spent the whole afternoon
moving an heavily modified proprietary rc (originally based on suse, but
modified to some very different approach) on my server to the init-style
we use in the book. I still can't believe i'm done with it. Best thing i
can see is that i've saved lots of PIDs. Before the change i logged in as
bash[407] and now i can get bash[116] with having the same stuff running
like before. It must be magic...
