-inetd option with RH7.2

I had the same problem after installing RH 7.2 with the default options.
Install time one can choose for high, medium, low and no security. Default
is medium. After re-installing with no security, it works. Since the machine
does not need any security, I leave it this way.

A (less likely) difference between my installs was that I used gnome the
first time and kde the second time for display manager. 

Success,
