If you are using Ubuntu then you can select what you want to load at boot by System > Administration > Services. You can disable all the services you do not want to activate by default.
You can configure boot loader settings from /boot/grub/menu.lst file. This has been talked about here. So just search LQ and you will find how to change the default boot option.
If you go through the file you could find it just yourself.
If you want to do it graphically, install startup manager from Synaptic.
