Control of services at startup in Etch


Hello;

I am using Debian for the first time, and I would like to know how to manage the services loaded at startup in this genial distro.
I would like to know how to remove services from startup, or how to add a new one to be loaded when booting.

Thank you very much in advance,

Regards

Code:
man update-rc.d
For something easier..

Code:
aptitude install sysv-rc-conf
sysv-rc-conf

use update-rc.d e.g. to start a program at boot time

Code:
#update-rc.d servicename defaults
To stop a program from running at boot time,
Code:
#update-rc.d -f servicename remove
