Try "sudo dpkg-reconfigure initscripts". Though since you've moved stuff
around I'm not sure if the packaging scripts will handle setting up the
service symlinks correctly. You may need to use the "--force" option.
You may have reinstall the initscripts package altogether if
dpkg-reconfigure doesn't work. To reinstall use "sudo apt-get install
--reinstall initscripts" If that fails, use the "--force=yes" option
Standard caveat: You should backup your system before attempting to use
any of the above commands since there is a potential to damage your setup.
If all else fails, you could fix the links manually by comparing them
againt the rc*.d directories of a LiveCD.
