   FIAIF cannot support all kind's of distributions (different version of 
   RH, Mandrake, Debian, Suse, PLD, etc.) in the makefile. It would simply 
   be too hard to maintain. The Tests for directories seems to be the 
   easiest and best.


I totally understand.

   Ok. Comments have been removed, and the diff applied.
   I wonder however why the two last tests are so equal. The first tests 
   for existance of /etc/rc.d/init.d and the next tests for /etc/rc.d,
   and they do the same. It seems that the 3. test is redundant, which is 
   why I have removed it.

I didn't want to mess with what you had as I don't have SUSE or older
RH systems to test against; so I left that in.

 The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend
