Your question is far to vague – Giann Jun 29 '11 at 16:45
Sounds like they're asking for a reordering of the /etc/rc.d scripts. – ewwhite Jun 29 '11 at 17:04
This depends a lot on the distribution you're using. – Massimo Jun 29 '11 at 17:09
First: Which Linux Distribution? Debian, SuSE or RedHat? Second: What is wrong with the default start order? What are your specific problems? – Nils Aug 20 '11 at 20:42

You want to change the point in the startup sequence where network configuration happens and sshd starts?

Typically networking happens after (local) filesystems are mounted and critical local daemons are up, and SSH starts right (or very soon) after Networking. I can't think of any reason to want to change it (and on many modern Linux or BSD systems you CAN'T: Startup script ordering is determined for you by the OS based on a dependency graph).
