Does the DM service start if you login at a console as root and do service dm start ? If it doesn't is there a file called 'dm' in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ ? If it's missing use the control centre to uninstall and re-install the initscripts package.

Is the /etc/rc.d directory and everything under it writable by root? If it's not writable neither the Control Centre or webmin will be able to create the links to the files in the /etc/rc.d/rc.[0-6]/ directories.
