The easiest way:
/etc/init.d/service_name start/stop/restart

The debian cli tools:
man invoke-rc.d
man update-rc.d

A gui tool in testing/unstable:
apt-get install bum

and there's also the cli tool sysv-rc-conf that let you turn off services in all rcX, even rc.S, which bum doesn't let you. Just apt-get it
