[lug] Newbie having problem with sendmail

I'm trying to set up a gateway machine based on RedHat 6.1 (server 
installation).  I've been having problems with resolving names 
external to my small home network.  So last night I had intended to 
log on and use nslookup to try and troubleshoot the problem.  
Anyway that will have to wait since my machine does not even boot, 
it stops while attempting to start sendmail after entering run level 3.  I 
can boot at run level 1.  Your suggestions for troubleshooting this 
problem would be greatly appreciated.

As an aside, should I use smail instead of sendmail?  I've read its 
easier to configure and sendmail seems to come up often in 
descriptions of computer security problems.

TIA,  Rob
