      typical problems, first your HTTP error is most likely due to the fact
      that you haven't configured the host name in httpd.conf. Once you do
      that, it shouldn't fail in boot. As far as sendmail, it's notoriously
      slow on start up. I personally refuse to use it for just that reason.
      You may want to disable it and INND, if you aren't really using them. I
      don't know about mandrake, but redhat 6 just go to a root prompt and
      type setup, that will allow you to choose what you want to start
      automatically. Hope this helps.
