the errors for sshd, sendmail and cups are caused by the programs not finding the kerberos libraries on your system, check the configuration files for these services you may be able to turn kerberos support off if you are not using it also check that you have the krb5-libs package installed.
The init error is caused by your X Windows System (Graphical environment) not starting up correctly, in run level 5 the X Windows System is started up on boot by the init process, init is configured to relaunch the X Windows System when that process ends.
init has been unable to lauch X and has kept trying to relaunch it, init is clever enough to detect this and says I am going to wait five minutes before trying to launch X again.
I mostly see this with an incorrectly configured X Windows System, try looking in the logfile /var/log/xfree86.log (unsure on name of logifle on RedHat 9) look for the lines that start (EE) and (WW) should give you some clues.
