    One of the errors I see most in my logwatch reports is "Id "S0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes".

    Could you help me try to fix that? Here's my inittab:

    # inittab       This file describes how the INIT process should set up
    #               the system in a certain run-level.
    # Author:       Miquel van Smoorenburg, <>
    #               Modified for RHS Linux by Marc Ewing and Donnie Barnes
    # Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
    #   0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    #   1 - Single user mode
    #   2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
    #   3 - Full multiuser mode
    #   4 - unused
    #   5 - X11
    #   6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    # System initialization.
