RHEL 4 and Sendmail

I have had Sendmail work fine with Red Hat Enterprise 3 but....

with RHEL 4 it is failing at the file It appears that every time I try to send mail, Sendmail restarts by overwritting that file to the default.

In other words is not properly being saved.

Any clue on how to fix this?
