Optimizing Init.d - minimalistic

I have the following on my init.d
aep1000  functions  irda       kudzu    nfslock  rawdevices  syslog   xinetd
apmd     gpm        kdcrotate  netfs    nscd     rhnsd       tux      ypbind
autofs   halt       keytable   network  ntpd     saslauthd   winbind  yum
bcm5820  iptables   killall    nfs      random   single      xfs
I removed everything I knew wouldnt make red hat crash on startup
But I think I can remove more, I use BlackBox basically just form java programming
and internet, I dont know about all that kdcrotate, irda,iptables,tux, but Im not sure
about removing, could any one give an suggesting on what to remove(with backup, that is)
And why is yum there?Is it trying to autoload some parts of itself so I would run faster when call him?
