command to check which services are running on linux

does chkconfig --list display all the service running on the system??
I want to check all the services running and keep minimum services required on the Linux machine and remove the rest so that my system becomes faster....

chkconfig --list shows which services will be automatically run upon entering the given runlevel. If you want to stop a service from starting do:
chkconfig --level <your_default_runlevel> <service_name> off
