Question Explanation of services at startup

Does anyone know of an article that gives a detailed explanation on what the services that begin at startup are for? Hopefully including some kind of explanation for why I might need to run it, or cases where I wouldn't need to run it. It seems that most distributions I've used run 40 or so and a lot look like they are only needed for laptop users.

See if the command ntsysv is available.
If yes


Then just select a service and type F1 .
This should give you the basic information about that service.

A redhat press book will give you some ore information on the services .
