In RedHat the Initialization files are located in /etc/rc.d/
There are some files and directories there.
rc.sysinit is the main initialization file, but if you want to customize your startup/shutdown you should read the scripts in that directory and in the subdirectories.
In other distributions this files might be in another location, but usually the directory name is always rc.d
