Right now, this is mostly implementation-dependent. The Linux Standard
Base (LSB, http://www.linuxbase.org/ ) contains some
distribution-independent provisions for ordering of startup scripts,
which should work on LSB-compliant environments.
The current LSB draft is v1.3, which is available for public review now
( http://www.linuxbase.org/spec/index.shtml ). In particular, the
chapter on System Initialization looks like it would be helpful
( http://www.linuxbase.org/spec/gLSB/gLSB/sysinit.html ).
