Maybe the daemon is running but I don't think so:

mkb at veri:/var/log$ ps -elf|grep rsync
0 S mkb      24869 21866  0  80   0 - 17433 pipe_w 15:26 pts/4
00:00:00 grep rsync

and this is when I've tried both of
a) /usr/bin/rsync --daemon -v
b) sudo /sbin/chkconfig rsync on

I also see, when trying to see which rsync modules are loading, the
follow error message (when invoked from another machine): 

# rsync
rsync: failed to connect to Connection refused
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(104)

Please could somebody let me knw what I'm going wrong? Ta, MIchael
