I'm not sure this is quite what you're looking for, but you might want to read it:
http://www.linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/mini...ered.html#toc5

And here's a run down of Red Hat services and what they do, many of which will appear on your computer too.

Read this thread at kerneltrap.org, even if you aren't ready to delve into this yet. Check out the ibm link on parallel service init:
http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/2644

Also, if you've just made a clean install and have all your stuff backed up, now is the best time to break your PC. You always reinstall. Experimenting is how you learn to use Linux.

At least give some risky tweaks a shot when you're ready to reinstall.
