Help with startup services (rcconf)


Can anyone tell me what I don't need to run on startup from the list below, I know need sl-modem-daemon, & ppp, for when I need the modem, acpi doesn't work yet so i don't think I need it. I'm not running a network or connecting to a network, I just connect to the internet.

acpid
atd
cron
dbus-1
dirmngr
exim4
fam
gdm
inetd
klogd
lpd
makedev
mplayer
nfs-common
pcmcia
ppp
sl-modem-daemon
ssh
sysklogd

You can look at them yourself too with for example "apt-cache show nfs-common" or just the packages man page.
From those I would offhand loose ssh, nfs-common, fam, atd, dirmngr, inetd and perhaps exim which is a mail transport agent (you might need it for local mail delivery). Kind of hard to tell which others you could loose and I don't know what mplayer is doing there. All in all why not just remove one you don't know about and put it back if something doesn't work.
