    However, when having then run from different runlevels, it's better to have one
file (under /etc/init.d) with symlinks to whichever runlevel you need it to run

    Manually yes, because it inherits your (user) PATH when you type it in.

    Stick echo/print statements in the script, pipe them to /tmp/<file> or
something.  After bootup, examine /tmp for a) does the <file> exist?  Does it
contain any information?  If the <file> exists, then the script is run at bootup,
if it doesn't, you know it hasn't even been called.

    Then it should work just fine.
