That is why it really up to you to find out what is wrong.  Walk
through you boot sequence step by step and find out where there are
problems and why.

So what should be next?  Check a listing of /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S* to
find what you configured.  Are you sure that the previous step
really finished?  Answering such questions is much easier if you are
running that explicitely instead of making it happen "by itself".
