I'm not sure but it sounds like the service command Ubuntu (I don't know
about Debian) uses. The syntax is pretty simple:
service ssh start
starts /etc/init.d/sshd. I haven't used /sbin/rc yet but I feel it works the
same way. It won't affect the daemons array, it's just a way of starting,
restarting and stopping daemons whilst the system is running.
