But you can look into /etc/init.d and see what you can start . :-) 
Yum on CentOs is very stable, suppressed RedHat is giving you issues...

Just wait till you see systemd.  Talk about monolithic piece of complicated
mess. Its coming in RHEL7 since its been pushed so heavily in the Fedora
world for a while now by the Gnome people.

I'm just used to systems with much less helpers, and remember when even the
/etc/rc.x/ init.d way was the "new" way.. or at least, I seem to remember
there was a way that was different so long ago.

The "service" word is just more acceptable to the MS-community
and those who don't believe in Daemons.
