I'd run "rpm -Va" and examine the output.  Anything it shows in the
output is something that differs from what should be installed and what
actually is.  See the rpm man page for details.

Run yum reinstall for any package that appears to have issues.

/etc/init.d is supposed to be a symbolic link to /etc/rc.d/init.d, if
they're not then you need to fix that, and before you fix that you'll
need to move any scripts you put inside it to /etc/rc.d.init.d.  The
