I will give this a whirl and see how it goes. I have never had issues 
with the unquoted YES statements unless they are not balanced (i.e. 
foo_enable=YES" or foo_enable="YES blows up), but I did quote everything 
to be consistent

I commented out the securelevel stuff as well.

Thanks for the suggestions. i will report back once i get the box rebooted
