I'd stick rather closely to SVR4 (or Solaris, if that matters),
marking directories which contains scripts with a ".d"-suffix. I.e.
naming the startup-scrupt for multiuser/server-mode "rc3", but putting
the init-scripts for it into "rc3.d".

Also, putting all the startup-scripts into "/etc/init.d" and linking
them into "/etc/rc?.d" sounds nice to me, as I now where to look if I
want to change a single startup-script.
