Starting services smb, winbind, squid upon startup RHEL 5

I'm usually pretty savy with linux, but this one has beaten me so far.

Usually I would add a service such as Windbind, Squid or SMB using the command

chkconfig squid on

Far simple and the service starts up when the linux box boots. Not this time. Any service I add isnt starting up as usual.

I've checked the services with ntsysv and they are checked to begin but no luck.

Im using RHEL 5. Any ideas?
