As root, (or use su - to gain root privs) enter "runlevel" this will kick back two numbers, typically "n #" - the second # is your current runlevel, the first is the last you were in (n IIRC means none, indicating you booted cleanly into your current runlevel)- you want the second #. With that number in mind, enter "cd /etc/rc.d/rc#.d" where # is the number you just discovered. In this directory do an "ls" -- these are all the services that start on your machine, numbered in order. S = start in this runlevel, K = kill in this runlevel. Next, run "more /etc/rc.local" - these are the scripts that you, as a user, can have the machine run if you don't want to go through entering numbered symlinks in the rc.d directories. These commands, if they exist at all (and they may not), are run in the order that they appear. There is more to know, but these are the important-to-understand basics, and will probably give you what you need to know.
