YaST for suse what for redhat


I was reading a post about bloating of the system and how certain things should be turned off now i have decided to look to see if these things are on like postfix apache and others but i am unsure how to do this and also it said in the post to turn it off thru YaST but this is for SuSe and i am wondering if there is a similar program for redhat if not plz inform me how i would do it without such gui programs which is good to know anyways thx hope someone can help!

The redhat docs are very thorough, you should find everything you need here.

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/

good luck.

From the start menu find system settings -> services.

From a console window
chkconfig --list
This will list services and associated runlevels

Assuming your not logged in as root, remember that /sbin isn't in a users environment path. If you logged in via su then your not using root's path either. Try su - instead.
