Well yea I figured that out. But this is the problem. In gentoo you have a dir /etc/init.d with all the startup scripts, just like in redhat...
then you use a script rc-update to add and remove programs you want to start on the different boot levels.
I have been doing the check_mailscanner thing and then an nmap and no port 25 is open...... So i'm guessing something is wrong big time?

Any help appreciated, I'll make a temp acct if someone wants to look around my system...
