22 <para>The BLFS Bootscripts package contains the init
23 scripts that are used throughout the book. It is assumed that you will be
24 using the BLFS Bootscripts package in conjunction with a compatible
25 LFS-Bootscripts package. Refer to
26 <ulink url="&lfs-root;/chapter09/bootscripts.html"/> for more
27 information on the LFS-Bootscripts package.</para>

37 <para>The BLFS Bootscripts package will be used throughout the BLFS book
38 for startup scripts. Unlike LFS, each init script has a separate install target
39 in the BLFS Bootscripts package. It is recommended you keep the package source
40 directory around until completion of your BLFS system. When a script is
41 requested from BLFS Bootscripts, simply change to the directory and as the
42 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user, execute the given
43 <command>make install-<replaceable>&lt;init-script&gt;</replaceable></command>
44 command. This command installs the init script to its proper location (along
45 with any auxiliary configuration scripts) and also creates the appropriate
46 symlinks to start and stop the service at the appropriate run-level.</para>
48 <note>
49 <para>You should review each bootscript before installation to
50 ascertain that it satisfies your need. Also verify that the start and stop
51 symlinks it creates match your preferences.</para>

55 <para>From time to time the bootscripts are updated to accommodate
56 new packages or to make minor corrections. All versions of the
57 bootscripts are located at <ulink
