Question Controlling SuSE's startup apps (ntsysv equivelant)

Does SuSE have an equivelant app to RedHat's ntsysv for controlling which daemons load at startup? While we're at it, does SuSE have an equivelant to RedHat's service command? Thx!

The easiest way (imo), is by adding/removing links in /etc/init.d/rc3.d (or one of the other rc*.d directories, depending on your default runlevel).

Thanks! Anything like the "service" command in RedHat? It was really handy running "service network restart" or "service smbd restart" etc.
