Unless you have created your own start-up script you won't
have one (unless the rpm installs one?) These scripts are also 
to be found in /etc/rc.d/init.d.

Try just 'ps aux' or 'ps ax', though the result below shows it running.

Try changing your cgi link mode to 4755, and if that's no good
try just 755 - depending on your setup it may or may not need to
be suid. And ensure that it's owned by the Interchange user. 
Also, you really should set your PERL_SIGNALS to unsafe as 
the startup message suggests, else you will get all sorts of 
intermittent and otherwise inexplicable failures. Adding:
	$ENV{PERL_SIGNALS} = "unsafe";
into the top of bin/interchange, just after the #!/usr/bin/perl, will
do the trick.
