Startup File

Hi all

On Knoppix 3.7, where/what file would I look for to edit Startup Items?

For instance, I dont want/need cups running or apache, etc. But I do want to add vncserver to the list...

Look for a "Services" entry in the "System Tools" menu (on KDE3 at least, on my Rh9 system).

I've got an entry there labelled "Services" which I can click and then set what services should run or what shouldn't. You should have something similar?

If you can't find these when logged in as a normal user, try logging into XWindows as root and seeing if you might not be able to find the options then.
