Ah, now if that works it would be great.
The man pages left the impression that only those services mentioned in
the /etc/insserv.conf could be mentioned there

And my tests with the following in the firewall script:
# Provides: shorewall
# Required-Start: $network vmware
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 2 3 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Description: starts and stops the shorewall firewall

Were unsuccessfull in getting the thing to force vmware to
load first. Infact the insserv -d command halted saying
vmware was not enabled, yet chkconfig said it was.

Maddening. If i manually set it and stay away from
insserv it will stay put, but one trip thru yast and
I have to adjust it again.

thx anyway.
