Default Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 3 - saslauthd problem


I read in one of Falko's posts somewhere that the Perfect Setup Fedora Core 3 is basically the same for Fedora Core 2. I have followed that and have got so far, but now I have encountered my first error.

Now start Postfix, saslauthd, imap and pop3:

chkconfig --levels 235 sendmail off
chkconfig --levels 235 postfix on
chkconfig --levels 235 saslauthd on
works fine.
We then come to
chkconfig imap on
and I get an error,
error reading information on service imap: No such file or directory
which is fine as Dovecot was installed instead of imap, so I change this to
chkconfig Dovecot on
and it seems to be ok.
chkconfig imaps on
chkconfig ipop3 on
chkconfig pop3s on
all produce the same error.

>>>>> Should I replace these lines with anything or just leave them out?

/etc/init.d/sendmail stop
/etc/init.d/postfix start
/etc/init.d/saslauthd start
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
All seem to work ok apart from
/etc/init.d/saslauthd start
which throws an error saying
could not read from startup_pipe
If I just type
saslauthd start
at the prompt I get an error telling me
no authentication method specified
and list of options which seems to suggest that saslauthd is there somewhere ready to go but I'm just not giving it the right information. I tried
saslauthd -a pam
which throws up the message:
saslauthd[22578] :detach_tty      : Cannot start saslauthd
saslauthd[22578] :detach_tty      : could not read from startup_pipe
Obviously I'm missing something here. Would be grateful if someone could help me out.

Thanks in advance
