I don't know if that's really a standard. In the SuSE partition I
have, it's called boot.local. And it's run just about last from their
"boot" script, the equivalent to our /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc. But, I think
for maximum compatibility with our bootscripts, you'd want to symlink
in rcsysinit.d like I described above.
