chkconfig should help you. This enables you to make certain services start on boot.

Or by example:
# chkconfig --list                # Available services and runlevels
# chkconfig --list  | grep 5:on   # All services to be started in runlevel 5
# chkconfig httpd on              # Start Apache in runlevels 2-5 on boot
See the chkconfig manpage for more options.

Thumbs up

For Apache at the root terminal type:
"chkconfig httpd on" then press enter.
For mysql type:
"chkconfig mysqld on" then press enter.
For postfix type:
"chkconfig postfix on" then press enter.
"chkconfig httpd off" then press enter.
"chkconfig mysqld off" then press enter.
"chkconfig postfix off" then press enter.RESPECTIVELY
