It was incorporated into the code quite a while ago.

I only want to include 1 script. I changed it to use the same locations as
the default Mcafee installation, as that'w what most prople wanted. Sorry
about that.

The init.d script is only included in the rpm as it is extremely

linux. If you want a copy of it without having to extract it manually from
