Firstly, all scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d are executable. They have to be
in order to run. Secondly, all the symlinks are placed in directories
corresponding to the runlevel number because that's how Sysvinit works.
I'm unfamiliar with Slackware's boot process but if they don't have to
do it like the way we do then the probably aren't using Sysvinit.
