chkconfig equivalent debian

Hi Gurus

I am new to debian.

I use chkconfig --del <service name> in SuSE to stop a service. What is the equivalent to stop a service **permanently** in debian (sarge)

(I want to stop sshd)

Many thanks

If you don't need the service you can simply delete the package for it. If that's to much you can look in /etc/init.d where the startup scripts for programs are.

Or a more elegant way would be using the 'update-rc.d' command which allows you to add/remove/set the symlinks in /etc/rc*.d that point to scripts in /etc/init.d.
To remove a script that starts a certain service run
update-rc.d -f script_name remove
then you can keep or delete the corresponding script in /etc/init.d/
