removing the services loaded during boot

I am running openSUSE 10.2. The boot process takes quite a long time. There is one step when suse tries to configure the network. Theres a line during boot which says 'Checking for essential services' and I think it waits for eth0 to 'start' There is a sort of countdown from 10 to 1 after this line and then it moves on to the next service.. As the box is not networked, I do not want it to check for any network.How can I do this?

I checked the inittab file. There was a runlevel 2 which was described as 'Multiuser networkless'. But there was no mention of xdm which has been made active in the default runlevel (5). Should I change the default runlevel to 2 or should I change the scripts in the runlevel 5 directory? Will I have to delete the scripts which check for the network?

Not too sure about suse, but under Fedora there is in the KDE desktop menu a section for System and then Services. If I click that I get an app where I can turn services on and off for each runlevel.

I strongly suspect Suse has something similar? Maybe in yast?
