    Check so that ypserv is in your root PATH.

    I believe that that "execvp" error originates from a program called "initlog", which the redhat init scripts as a wrapper to start daemons. It's started from the daemon function in the file /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions, which is sourced by, for example, /etc/rc.d/init.d/ypserv, which starts ypserv. Maybe you should debug it from there.
    Where exactly do you have ypserv? Maybe you should add echo $PATH to /etc/rc.d/init.d/ypserv to see that it corresponds to that location.
