I am using a TS-7800 single board computer from Technologic Systems that ships with Debian 3.1 (Sarge). I have updated it to Squeeze, but due to various driver issues I have been forced to roll back to Sarge. I am attempting to configure the various drivers and configurations needed for my application services before they start. Ideally I would call one init.d script that contains the drivers / configurations then call the other init.d scripts (one for each process).

I am left scratching my head on how to guarantee the boot sequence. I know in later versions of Debian I could use the LSB header to achieve this; but is there anything comparable to the LSB header in Sarge?

It's plain System V init scripts. So no dependencies by default, you can only plan the order of starting and in which run levels.
