Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

there should be a command you can run that shows what is running or what is now stopped and run at boot.
I thought it was chkconfig and having files linked in /etc/rcX.d/. For example, my ssh process is linked into the rc2-5 run levels.
So it should be starting, but for whatever reason it's not. per the link, I can start processes (albeit temporarily with service start process). The override file didn't work however.. The upstart commands (like status, start, stop) seemed to have no effect.
#$ dpkg -S /sbin/init
#$ dpkg -S upstart-sysv
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *upstart-sysv*
#$ dpkg-reconfigure upstart-sysv
dpkg-query: package 'upstart-sysv' is not installed and no information is available
sudo update-initramfs -u
seemed to have no effect. I am running on a OpenVZ container so I may not have access to that.
I believe that the .conf scripts are being run however since removing them (from /etc/init) caused a lot of issues on the next bootup!
For some reason however, the ones I want aren't (dealing with files in /etc/init.d/rc*.d). I'd love to see the debug log for what's going on but I'm not aware of where to look for this one. /var/log/upstart/* did not contain any relevant info..
