Help with list of services using chkconfig command


When I do the chkconfig command like this:
chkconfig --list | grep -i on

I get the following resuts:

0-6 are runlevels. Typically for Redhat based distributions:
0 - Halt the system
1 - Single-user mode
2 - Multi-user mode (without networking)
3 - Multi-user mode
5 - Multi-user mode, graphical login
6 - Reboot the system

google for more info.
