You'll notice that the filenames of the scripts in initd (and/or the symlinks to them in each rcx
.d directory) will begin with "S" or "K". The scripts beginning with S s
tart services/processes and the scripts beginning with K k
ill services/processes. To keep any given startup script from executing, you don't even have to delete it- simply change the first letter of the script's name to something other than an upper-case "S". Just changing it to a lower-case S will even do the trick. That way, if you ever need to activate the script in the future, you'll easily be able to identify it, and simply change the "s" back to "S" to have it start at boot.
