Haven't seen a way in yast, but try SysV-Init Editor.
In SuSe 9.1 - KDE: System > Service Configuration > SysV-Init Editor
Click on the service in the run level you want to edit. Change the sort
order so it starts after any required services. Change the stop order
also if shutdown order makes a difference. You will need to make the
change in every runlevel you want the service to run in.
Seems like I had trouble making these changes stick if I went back to
yast to configure something. What I ended up doing was making a
symlink with a new name. In my case, yast started smbfs at 08
(S08smbfs). In one of the kernels I boot, that postion didn't work for
some reason. I changed it to S21smbfs and it work fine. Problem was
any time I used yast run level editor, it set it back to S08smbfs. I
finanlly made a symlink called S21my_smbfs. No problems any more.
May not be the cleanest solution, but it's working so far.
