Am I running Upstart?

I'm trying to get a handle on starting/stopping and managing processes. I was playing around with rcconf and things I disabled (or enabled there) didn't take effect. I found the initctl command, so that led me to believe I'm using Upstart instead of all the rc and init directories.
Is there any way to tell? Could I be running both?
I'm running an Ubuntu 10.04 server.

If you're on Lucid, you're using upstart.
Personally I'd be inclined to believe "man init"
