use ntsysv as root to pick what starts and does not start in the current runlevel. If you want to change what starts in other runlevels use: ntsysv --level 1-5 whatever runlevel you want to modify.

or you can go into /etc/rc.d/rc<1-5>.d and either move or put a . in front of the S to stop a service from starting on boot up. If the service you want to start has a K in front of it and you want that service to start automaticaly change the K to a S.

to figure out what runlevel you are in type runlevel.

RH7.1 also uses xinetd. the config files for programs that use this are located in /etc/xinetd.d/
