In most distros you can type at the command line
ntsysv

A utility will show up with a list of services that can be started at boot-up , scroll down the list and select / deselect the required service by pressing the space bar , then press Tab to select OK and then exit.

yup as win32sux said you can use the chkconfig utility from the command line interface or if you are using th desktop you can run redhat-config-services to get a nice little gui. I prefer chkconfig as well but linux is all about options so I figured I'd throw this one out too.
