Manually starting tomcat on Ubuntu


I have installed tomcat6 on Ubuntu. It starts it automatically at the startup. I do not want it to start automatically, I want to start it manually because I use same 8080 port for different servers. If tomcat is already started on 8080, it becomes problem.

How do I stop Ubuntu from not starting tomcat automatically at startup.

I'm not familiar with ubuntu but if it is as Debian, first stop it by running :
/etc/init.d/tomcat stop
and then remove autostart by running :
update-rc.d tomcat remove
That should do the trick.
