You are using a distribution that needs an  (old-style)  initscript to start 
dahdi, but don't appear to have the initscript present.

When you type something like
# service foo start
what happens is dependent on what kind of startup system you are using.  With 
"old-fashioned" initscripts, the computer looks in /etc/init.d for a file 
called "foo" and then tries to execute that file with the parameter(s) you 
supplied  (here "start").  Since there is no file called /etc/init.d/dahdi on 
your machine, then the command is failing.

For your convenience, I've attached the relevant initscript from an older 
DAHDI version  (2.6.1)  but it probably should work OK with yours.  Save it as
and then run
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/dahdi
so any user can read and execute it, but only root can write it.

Then it should work.
