/etc/boot.d is a directory you can create and fill with shell scripts.
If it doesn't exist, /etc/rc.local ignores it. So it's a good place to
put your extra stuff you want to run at that time during boot.

Mine has numbered scripts, so it runs them in that order I think. I
can't recall where the docs for it are.
