How do i eliminate services or daemons running at the beginning?

my question is how do i stop the services that start running automatically every time i power on my pc? example, sendmail, apache, etc, etc...`cause specifically when it starts and it tries to start sendmail, i wait like an hour waiting for the login to prompt...i want the computer to start fast...

You can administer the services with chkconfig. chkconfig --list shows a list of the available services, and at what runlevels they are running. To stop a service, issue chkconfig <service> off. Read the man pages for more options.
