You need to use a boot CD that has byteswapping enabled such as Kazymyr's Boot CD. Here is a partition table for an HDR112 (upgraded to an 80GB drive):

code:
Partition map (with 512 byte blocks) on '/dev/hdc' #: type name length base ( size ) 1: Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 2: Image Bootstrap 1 4096 @ 24777792 ( 2.0M) 3: Image Kernel 1 4096 @ 24781888 ( 2.0M) 4: Ext2 Root 1 262144 @ 24785984 (128.0M) 5: Image Bootstrap 2 4096 @ 25048128 ( 2.0M) 6: Image Kernel 2 4096 @ 25052224 ( 2.0M) 7: Ext2 Root 2 262144 @ 25056320 (128.0M) 8: Swap Linux swap 131072 @ 25318464 ( 64.0M) 9: Ext2 /var 262144 @ 25449536 (128.0M) 10: MFS MFS application region 1048576 @ 25711680 (512.0M) 11: MFS MFS media region 24777728 @ 64 ( 11.8G) 12: MFS New MFS Application 1024 @ 26760256 13: MFS New MFS Media 133300224 @ 26761280 ( 63.6G) 14: Apple_Free Extra 25024 @ 160061504 ( 12.2M)
The rc.sysinit file you need to replace will be on partition 4 or 7 (depending on which is your active root partition). Boot up with the CD and enter the following commands:

mkdir /mnt4
mount /dev/hdd4 /mnt4
cd /mnt4/etc/rc.d

[Edited to be /dev/hdd4 for secondary slave]

Take a look at the rc.sysinit file and see if this is the one you modified. If so, copy your backup over it. If not, repeat the above steps for partition 7.

If you want to, you can use the joe editor to create an rc.sysinit.author file in the same directory (by default, rc.sysinit will look to see if this file exists).
