Smile what is function & command equality to chkconfig command?

if i am using redhat distro like RHEL5 or CentOS or fedora, than i just using command "chkconfig" than can check which service is turn on or off on individual run level like run level 2,3,4,5 and also can configure it to turn on or off on individual run level, if using other linux distro like ubuntu, suse, slackware... then what is the equality command or way to do it?
