Angry Slackware Startup script

I can't find my Slackware 10.0 startup script! I'd like to remove a few things and add a few things. (Add GDM, Remove Sendmail daemon and hotpluging). Where can I find it?

edit /etc/inittab and change the init level to the one that boots X, it will say in the file which runlevel is for what.

in /etc/rc.d to prevent any deamons running at startup just remove all the execute permissions from the appropriate file
