     chkconfig - configuration state checker

     chkconfig [ -s ]
     chkconfig flag
     chkconfig [ -f ] flag [ on | off ]

     chkconfig with no arguments or with the -s option prints the state (on or
     off) of every configuration flag found in the directory /var/config.  The
     flags normally are shown sorted by name; with the -s option they are
     shown sorted by state.

     A flag is considered on if its file contains the string ``on'' and off

     If flag is specified as the sole argument, chkconfig exits with status 0
     if flag is on and with status 1 if flag is off or nonexistent.  The exit
     status can be used by shell scripts to test the state of a flag.  Here is
     an example using sh(1) syntax:

	  if /sbin/chkconfig verbose; then
	       echo "Verbose is on"
	       echo "Verbose is off"

     The optional third argument allows the specified flag to be set.  The
     flag file must exist in order to change its state.	 Use the -f
     (``force'') option to create the file if necessary.

     These flags are used for determining the configuration status of the
     various available subsystems and daemons during system startup and during
     system operation.

     A daemon or subsystem is enabled if its configuration flag in the
     /var/config directory is in the on state.	If the flag file is missing,
     the flag is considered off.  The following is a list of available flags
     and the associated action if the flag is on.  Depending upon your
     configuration, they may not all be available on your system.

     4DDN	     Initialize 4DDN (DECnet connectivity) software.

     acct	     Start process accounting.

     auto_ipaddress  Enable dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) as a

     automount	     Start the NFS automounter daemon.

     desktop	     If off, fewer of the IRIX Interactive Desktop(TM) user
		     interface features are enabled, and typically a different
		     toolchest menu is used.  It is identical to creating the
		     file $HOME/.disableDesktop except that it applies to all
		     accounts.	The specific effect is that the desktop
		     version of Xsession (/usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xsession.dt) is not
		     run upon login, and therefore programs started from that
		     file are not run or are run with different options.

     fontserver	     Start the X11R6 font server daemon.  See xfs(1).

     gated	     Start the Cornell routing daemon instead of the BSD

     hypernet	     Initialize HyperNET controller and routes.

     named	     Start Internet domain name server.

     network	     Allow incoming and outgoing network traffic.  This flag
		     can be set off if you need to isolate the machine from
		     the network without removing cables.

     nfs	     Enable NFS operations: start rpc.lockd and biod daemons,
		     mount all NFS filesystems, start autofs or automounter.

     nfsd	     Start NFS serving: export entries from /etc/exports,
		     start the NFS daemons rpc.mountd and nfsd.	 Requires that
		     nfs flag is set to ``on''.

     noiconlogin     Do not show user icons on the login screen.

     nsr	     Start up the IRIS NetWorker daemons.  See nsr(1M) for

     rarpd	     Start the Reverse ARP daemon.

     routed	     Start the 4.3BSD RIP routing daemon.  See routed(1M) for
		     more details.

		     graphics as a dumb terminal.

		     The recommended means of enabling and disabling the
		     window system are the commands startgfx(1G) and
