You might try setting sendmail up with webmin, it's much more tractable
and makes sure that things are consistent. You can install webmin with
'yum install webmin' I think.
Webmin uses your browser to communicate on port 10000 so after
installation you can surf to <yourhostname>.<yourdomainname>.<your
TLD>:10000 and log in as root.
I don't recommend editing sendmail.cf or any other sendmail files
manually. It's a can of worms and it's easy to break sendmail that way.
