Hi Scott,

It's too bad (in this particular case) that you are
agreeing with me!  I want someone to find a hole in
my logic so that I can find a handle to fix the
problem.  The problem being that postgres doesn't get
started when the machine gets rebooted.

Regards,

Run level 6 is reboot, so that's normal.

It shouldn't  be there, sounds like someone added it by hand.

Right, nothing should be started for those run levels.
