Start SSHD Automatically on SUSE Reboot

I have a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.2 and when I restart the computer and check the status of sshd service after rebooting using "/etc/init.d/sshd status" it tells me the service is not running and when I try to connect of course it tells me the connection is refused.

So each time I reboot the server I have to type "service sshd start" then the service starts then I can connect via SSH.

My question is; what setting(s) do I need to change to force sshd service to start automatically when the server starts?

This is a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.2 and I have not made any changes to the system yet.

Thanks,
Dan
