You can use rc.local or named anything else on Debian and all linuxes.
All you have to do is t ocreate /etc/init.d/rc.local,
write what you want into it and run the following as root:
update-rc.d rc.local defaults
if you want to remove the symlinks under rcX.d-s than remove
/etc/init.d/rc.local and run update-rc.d rc.local remove as root.

The boced set consist of 4 CDs but two of them are the sources
as far as I know. The other two are the raw (iso) files on progeny.com.
If you want the whole set of CDs than rsync the whole
archive.progeny.com/progeny/dists/stable and use debian-cd package to
create your own set of CDs. Or try to find someone with enough bandwith
to do it. But if you wait for a week or two I will create my own set.
But I'm located in Budapest (Hungary). But I will send it to you
if you want.
