And btw, as boot times in Slackware is nearly like Fedora (thanks to hotplug&initrd&udev in Slackware), you can switch to a SysV Init too.
As more daemons comes with Slackware, it doesn't matter which Initstyle, and BSD-Initstyle looks like SysV, so you can include SysV by default!

I hope you are kidding. It's probably the worst init style. I can't stand most Linux distros because of that archaic system. I would rather sandblast my ass than having to use it again.
