Re-initializing startup files without rebooting

Sorry for the newbie question. I'm using OSX BSD by remotely logging in and need to re-initialize the startup sequence but don't want to reboot the machine. How can I do it?

Thanks for any help.

There is a directory call /etc .

In a subdirectory there is another directory, something like rc or rc.d or something to that effect.

This are the scripts you are looking for.

Bizarrely, there were files called rc.* but no directory. Is that normal?

Most people and OS distribuations like to organize startup and shutdown scripts in a single directory structure. However, it will work just fine if the files are flatly located with a directory.
