How to have Linux re-read all the configuration file without reboot?

I read that to have Linux re-read all the configuration
files, initab, all the init files, etc, use the "telinit"
command.

Is this the proper way?

Is this sort of like rebooting the system without having
to use the "shutdown" command?

Are there things one should watch out for and are there
other things to do before issuing "telinit"?

Thanks
