Question getting postfix tyo start automatically

Postfix has an initscript just like sendmail did so while logged in as root, simply type: ntsysv and select postfix.

The message above is from the Redhat postifx FAQ. I tried running ntsysv and postfix is not listed as a selection. I can start postfix manually without any problems, but I need it to start on boot. What other way is there to get this setup?

postfix-nochroot - change /etc/postfix/master.cf to not use chroot SYNOPSIS
postfix-nochroot DESCRIPTION
Renames /etc/postfix/master.cf to /etc/postfix/master.cf.bak and creates a new /etc/postfix/master.cf file with every service configured to not use chroot. Every modified line is commented. It also restarts Postfix (to apply the change) and rmoves the unused chroot directories /var/spool/postfix/{etc,lib,usr} . Using a chroot environment makes upgrades more difficult and gets in the way when running SE Linux (without actually providing any security benefit in a SE Linux system). SEE ALSO
