edit the startup scripts. They should be located in /etc/rc.d/init.d

Which Linux distribution are you using?

Most of them have a GUI tool for service management and/or configuration.

At the command line, you can use chkconfig.
Code:
chkconfig --level <levels> <service_name> <on|off>
Type chkconfig --list to see a complete list of all services and runlevels.

As jpbarto, I generally just "chmod -x" the scripts I don't need (sendmail, et cetera). No editing necessary, and the scripts are still there in case I want them in the future

depends on the disto you are using. in my redhat test pc, i usually disable these services at startup:

rhnsd
autofs
kudzu

via chkconfig --level 12345 <service> off.

again, this would be different to other disto.

such as sendmail or kudzu.you can use "setup" to config your service and turn down what you don't need.

or you could install webmin which looks like a great way for newbs to get started taking control of their box. Although nothing beats learning to edit the files by hand. (it takes some work but then no matter what distro / system you're on you know what is doing what and how to take control, instead of relying on tools or utils to do the work for you).

5 seconds could easily just be due to hardware differences, or some vital deamon you are running, or filesystem. Any number of things.
