Attached patch is pretty invasive, 33 KB uncompressed. :-) I wasn't sure 
whether to leave inittab in the book where it is currently, but I am 
thinking from a packaging POV that it should remain as is and be removed 
from the bootscripts tarball now. It was required in the tarball 
previously because of the path changes.
