On gentoo I've typically do

rc-update add ypbind default

On CentOS I do:

chkconfig ypbind on

On gentoo /etc/hostname is typically read, on CentOS I have to set
HOSTNAME and DHCP_HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network. On gentoo I know
that the settings of the USE flags in /etc/make.conf can have an
impact on which features etc. are enabled in various packages.

This are minor differences, but it's easy to overlook some important
setting and make wrong assumptions when moving from one distribution
to another.
