Suffered similar issue of the /etc/rc0.d and rc6.d links being mangled by VMware player upgrade, in my case using 10.04.3 LTS version. Wrote a short script that puts it back to the order that I found on another (hopefully correct) 10.04 installation.

As with all scripts, and in particular with something you need to run as root/sudo, check carefully and THINK before using it!
