I am trying to set up a serial terminal, and convince my box that the irq
for my modem is 5
so I comment out the appropriate line in /etc/inittab, and no problem.
I use setserial to tell linux that them interrupt for /dev/cua2 is 5,
again no problem.
But when I try to set up the irq in rc.serial, IT NEVER WORKS
I can seem to get rc.serial to run, which I traced back to rc.S not
getting run, which seems strange, since the second or third command in
inittab is to invoke rc.S. So, is rc.S really runnning and not calling
rc.serial, and if not why is rc.S not being run?

HELP ME PLEASE, I am gonna recompile with a big aluminum baseball bat.
just kidding.
post or email, thanks.

1. difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit ?

What is the difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit?
I am using Redhat 8. I did a diff on them and they are identical.
/etc/rc.sysinit is apparently a copy of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit since it
says that it is that file, even though it's not (see below).

# /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit - run once at boot time

I want to change something in whichever of these scripts is run at
bootup, but I don't know which one gets run.
