yea, the MS-Way.. not "/etc/init.d/httpd start"

they aren't "services" they are daemons ;)

I'd love commands like:

daemon apache2 live
daemon tomcat die

Thanks for 'chkconfig' that's a new one. on me.
I went the Debian then the Ubuntu way at Redhat 9..
It's similar to "update-rc.d", but I don't use it either,
been doing it the hard way too long. Laughing..
But I'm trying to make an install document/procedure for others.
Trying to find the best ways and that will work.
