When you boot when the init scripts run one of the first things you want 
to start is iscsid. With fedora at least, some things like the 
iptables/firewalls or other security programs starting up can cause 
distuptions in the network you are using. This ends up causing the 
initiator to have to reconnect to the target and to do that we need 
iscsid running.
