well it's in there for sure but all it ever says is 'Not initiated'.

I checked the run levels already, still all it ever says is 'not initiated'.

Suse 8.0 is kind of yasted out or am I missing something? The yast doesn't allow me to make custom configurations to my config files...
and if there is some secret it's not in the book... I need to configure this thing to my users and needs and yast wants to control everything... unfortunately it overlooks a lot of things... like hosts allow and access.conf just to get started...

someone else told me they did this yast deal with 8.0 that it was normal prior to that... is it safe to pull the yast deal off till the machine is configured properly does anyone know, have they tried that? I don't mind yast watching the system after I have it configured for my needs but till then it's been a real monster, absolutely impossible to deal with...
