/etc/init.d/inetd.conf: No such file or directory
Not there by default, and I think not needed for rsyncd.
As far as i know, Ubuntu does not use inetd or xinetd ....
$ apt-file search /etc/init.d/inetd
$ apt-cache policy netkit-inetd
500 http://mirror.optus.net dapper/main Packages
500 http://mirror.pacific.net.au dapper/main Packages
So, the start up script does not exist, unless you install netkit-inetd ,
which evidently is not present by default, at least on dapper ( 6.06)
