It is /etc/rc.d and you select which ones actually start from the daemons line in /etc/rc.conf.

rc0.d - rc6.d are in sysv-style system but arch
I created these dirs manually, and then install vmware.

I think you've missed the point. Arch uses BSD-style init - /etc/rc.d. If vmware, or any other app, has an init script, it should be installed in /etc/rc.d, and if you want the app to start/stop on system boot/halt, the daemon name should be added to rc.conf DAEMONS. Creating rcX.d directories is pointless, because the Arch init process won't do anything with them.

I think vmware will create a link in rc.d
I deleted vmware from my machine because I think vmware will throw my files in to confusion, and I don't need vmware very much.
