Problem with sendmail upon bootup

I have recently gotten my hands on a copy of Fedora Core 3, and all's well and good... until I try to start the computer on the network.

sendmail, for some reason, crashes when I try to boot my computer onto the network and takes the whole system with it.

Is there any way I can disable it? What DOES it do, anyway?

Thanks for answering another possible n00b question.

You can disable it using chkconfig. (man chkconfig)

On my system:

/sbin/chkconfig sendmail off

You can make sure that it is not set to startup using:

/sbin/chkconfig --list sendmail
