GUI based interphase to start programs at boot time.

I have done a Knoppix install of Debian to HDD and I find that
postgresql postmaster
apache servers do not start at boottime.
Any easy way to do this with a simple GUI based interface in KNOPIX?

Debian has a tool called rcconf which is stupidly left out of the base system (whereas almost completely useless crap like pcmcia-cs is ) so you could try apt-get install'ing that. Is isn't exactly a GUI app (it's text based) but it gets the job done fairly well.

Thanks LSD!
I found something really nice called Webmin. I had used it long time ago but for another purpose.
It does this job too - very nicely through the web interphase (via the browser)
