RE: Changing run levels -init.d

I have put my scripts in init.d - and have not added them to chkconfig.
that's ok as I don't want them changed that way by anyone.

The redhat doc is a little jumbled when it gets to the exact lines about
Using the K* to stop process and S* to start processes

  if I am booting up to init 3 when init gets to this point, checks the
  does it run the K* scripts before S* scripts???
  *I thought* it only ran the S*
  if I go from init 3 to init 5 then *I thought*:
        init looks in rc3.d and runs all the K* scripts 
        then looks in rc5.d and runs all the S* scripts
  but the RH doc is saying if I go from 3 to 5 
	init looks in rc5.d and runs all the K* scripts 
      then looks in rc5.d and runs all the S* scripts

I am confused about this as I have googled on runlevels and seen
It stated as in A.

Does anyone know exactly how RH 2.1 works in this instance.

managing the rc scripts is a real pain.  so much so that some kind soul 
(Erik Troan) wrote chkconfig.  Read it's man page and revel in it's
