Hey Devin,

I'm feeling a little silly now and I swear I checked for this but you hit the nail on the head. Turns out I had pushed a service that was dependent on network further down the list so whenever I enabled snmpd in chkconfig it would re order network below the other dependent service. 

Thanks again for the help!
