This chapter will create the necessary scripts that are run at boot time. These scripts perform tasks such as remounting the root file system mounted read-only by the kernel into read-write mode, activating the swap partition(s), running a check on the root file system to make sure it's intact and starting the daemons that the system uses.
We will be using SysV style init scripts. We have chosen this style because it is widely used and we feel confortable with it. If you want to try something else, someone has written an LFS-Hint on BSD style init scripts.
