check out /etc/defaults/rcS and see if you can fix your problem there.

In the future, please send one problem per email. It's hard to find
all of the questions in this one.
I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
