    Is the run level 0 and 6 require for service?

    Ex: chkconfig –level 02356 servicename on

    May I know the reason for 0 and 6 levels to assign the particular service.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Nagarajan J

    Current Introduction typo to be corrected for directory path of RC scripts; /etc/rd.d/init.d

    The Chkconfig command tool allows to configure services start and stop automatically in the /etc/rd.d/init.d scripts through command line. Let’s see some examples.

    Corrected directory path of RC scripts; /etc/rc.d/init.d

    #2 could be better written as…
    $ chkconfig httpd –list

    6 less keystrokes is a win in my book :)
