Sounds like Mandrake is following the path of Red Hat, which is
unsurprising, given that it is a Red Hat knockoff. It seems
like they missed an opportunity to improve on Red Hat's upgrade
system in this area.

Red Hat switched to xinetd, which causes the upgrade to 7.2 to mess up
your inetd setup. No effort is made to automatically convert your inetd
configuration to xinetd (which is probably just as well). You basically
boot up the upgrade system, find that nothing works, then discover that
you are now using xinetd, and proceed to build up an xinetd configuration
based on your existing inetd configuration.

My little pet peeve was that there was no warning about this; nothing
that I noticed anyway. It's probably in some release notes document,
but who reads those? :)

How about this: please ask Linux setup questions in a Linux
setup newsgroup. CVS has no special relationship with xinetd.

RTFM about xinetd and set it up.
