I discovered this bug report when trying to find out why a Compaq 
Deskpro EN would not respond to WOL after an upgrade to etch. There 
still is a parallel installation of sarge on that machine that works 
fine. I replaced the original version of /sbin/halt that shipped with 
etch with the self-compiled version provided by Harry Coin in the 
discusstion of bug #414176. Now WOL works again. The Deskpro has an 
ethernet controller identified by lspci as Intel Corporation 
82801BA/BAM/CA/CAM Ethernet Controller, the driver used is e100.

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the debian bug reporting ethics, so I 
can only hope that its ok and may be helpful to report my observation 
here. What would have been the "right" way? From what I have found in 
the bug tracking system, this bug has not been closed. What could I have 
done to find a fixed version of sysvinit to install on my system?
