Cannot bind to port 515 to print

I got this error message when I restarted the lpd after changing the default print from cups. I was able to solve this problem by stopping the xinetd first then starting the lpd and then starting the xinetd. But everytime the system restarts the lpd shows the message. I wrote a script to overcome it. But I would like to know whether there is a better way to overcome this problem

You could rename the symlinks in your /etc/rc.d/rc5.d. The ones starting with S## will start a service and they are executed in the order of the ##. So just find S##lpd and S##xinetd and make lpd a lower number than xinetd.
