My sisid files were renamed.

Sys-unconfig doesn't have a problem.
It is good to know this info just incase I run into a system that has the
files but still wont config.

Thank you Ryan, Michael, Alan, and Sunmanagers.


***Solution used below from Ryan***

There are two scripts in /etc/rc2.d



Most likely someone disabled these scripts.  Something to the extent of
renaming them so they don't begin with a 'S' for start.

You can always run these manuall from the command line.
