Thanks for your help. I read the RedHat article, which has moved to here:


and found the secret for apache at least. :-) As a linux newbie I
feel a sense of accomplishment. I made two symbolic links to the
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl script in my rc3.d directory, naming
one of them something like K99httpd to start apache and the other
S55httpd to stop it. I'm still unclear on how the "K" or "S" in the
name of the link allows the OS to pass the "start" or "stop"
arguments to the script, but it works, so I'm happy.

Now to check out that mySQL startup script...
