    i tried on my rh8 before where i did "service named start" but later when i did another "service named restart" it said failed to shutdown or something. appearently the initial "service named start" din really start the service.

    As a lesson for myself, i always "service named restart" a several times to make sure (or rather to get a feel that) it's "started" smoothly.

    good luck.
