sendmail hanging at startup is usually a DNS problem as requests are timing out....

Also, My firewall is showing massive udp packets with state 1:0 from a single ip address
and I cannot ping to anything but my network ip address. Is this a sign of a DOS?
Everything was working great when I shutdown last night.

Not necessarily, it could just be that Comcast was screwed up for a while. They do use human being to maintain their network, and human beings are known to make misteaks from time to time....


Well, around 1215 I booted up F9 and now everything is working normally.
I have no idea what the problem was earlier unless Comcast was down.

Either its was Comcast, or the DOS stopped.  (yeah, I know, not too useful!)
