FC5 Upgrade Woes ... Home Network

I've just recently upgrades FC4 to FC5 ... didn't go well so I reformatted the partition and started over. I've got it running but I have a problem that I don't understand.

During boot up, the services named, nfs (two components) and smb take a loooong time to boot. Like two-three minutes, each. Takes nearly 10 minutes to boot the system.

I've tried interactive boot to see if I can just skip those, but when I do the X server won't load ... only command line interface.

Any ideas?

Also, when I finally do log into GNOME desktop, I get an error message that says the Power Manager won't work unless the system message bus is enabled. I don't have a laptop and near as I can tell Power Manager is for the batteries of those. I *think* I have turned it off (using the Services interface) but I still get the warning.

Any ideas?

To take care of your first problem, in Gnome you can go to System > Administration > Server Settings > Services and then deselect the services that take a long time to start. You can also run (as root):
# /sbin/chkconfig --remove nameofservice
As for the second problem, my only guess is to run yum update and see if that takes care of things for you. Otherwise, go hunting for some sort of setting somewhere to turn off the power manager.
