Linux equivalent of Windows Service Control Manager


Is there a Linux equivalent of Windows Service Control Manager GUI?

I know about the commands /sbin/service and /etc/init.d/*. But is there a GUI app that manages service like SCM in Windows? Or at least an API that I can program a GUI for?

Running RedHat if that makes any difference.

Yes, I know about the console commands like chkconfig or /sbin/service. But I'm looking for a GUI application that let me enable/disable service via dialog, not the console commands themselves.

Why not just install the GUI? That sort of thing is in the menus.
Alternately, use 'ntsysv' which doesn't require X-Win http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...es-ntsysv.html

But that's exactly my question? What is "the GUI"?
