Lightbulb newbie: how to see see what services my machine is running under init.d ?

Hi, on my mdk machine, i can see what sevices is running by going to "mandrake control center, and select services"

it tells me all those ssh sever, telnet sever, apache...etc etc..

well, I don't wanna live my linux life in a "window way".... I know all my services can be found under /etc/init.d
but how do i know which one is running and which not?

-thank you

chkconfig --list | grep on

This will list the ones you've got running in whatever mode. So if you startup in runlevel 3 (for example) you want to look at the #3 column and see which ones are set for "on".
