Too many running processes at boot...

I have been unable to find decent documentation regarding how to reduce the number of startup processes. I'm using Redhat 9 kern v.2.4.20-28.9. I'm still a newbie of course and am trying to learn the basics but I know I don't need processes like cups, samba, etc right now. I'm online (figured that one and still trying to figure out how to get flashplugins installed. So, can anyone please tell me what I can do to control what apps start when first booting into my system?

As for flashplugin you just need to copy flashplayer.xpt and to your mozilla plugin directory, which should be ~/.mozilla/plugins or /usr/lib/moziila-<version>/plugins if you want to have it available to all users.
