set/unset programs to run at startup


in Debian Etch, (runleve 3 or 5 don't matter)

how do I set/unset programs to run (or not run) at bootup?

I am used to redhat's

chkconfig --2345 blabla on
chkconfig --2345 blabla off

method.. I almost miss system-config-services

and also redhat's

service blabla start
service blabla stop

methods for starting and stopping services running.

how do I do these things in Debian? I have no clue.

I'd google, but have no idea what to google for really. I tried googling for "set program to run at bootop", but that query didn't find much results. hrmm. guess I'm not a very good googlier LOL

thanks

In Debian, you use update-rc.d e.g. to start a program at boot time
Code:
#update-rc.d servicename defaults
To stop a program from running at boot time,
Code:
#update-rc.d -f servicename remove
