While I agree with the premise that rc.local is often a good place to
start things like this, it's also possible to rearrange things in
/etc/rc.d/rc*.d. For instance, if ntpd is giving you problems:
ln -s ../init.d/ntpd S99ntpd
This will cause ntpd to start (S) at around the same time as other
things with the number 99, which is the last number.
Granted, if you ever use chkconfig to add/remove ntpd at this runlevel,
it will overwrite this change. That's because the init script itself
contains the number your distro's creators think is correct (58 in this
# ntpd This shell script takes care of starting and stopping
# ntpd (NTPv4 daemon).
# chkconfig: - 58 74
