I assume your box is booting to a command shell (runlevel 3) and not a GUI 
(runlevel 5).  If it's booting 'X' then the S... link should be in rc5.d.

In either case, lose the K99httpd link.  You're starting and killing the deamon 
which is why it isn't running.

You want the S99httpd link in the runlevel that you're use (3 or 5), the K... 
should be in runlevel 0 and 6 to kill the deamon when you shut down or reboot 
the box.
