in FC3 you can usually do 'chkconfig <service name> off'.

It doesn't get rid of the app just stops it starting at boot time

Are you talking about completely removing them? or just not having them start up when the system boots?

They are typically started in the start up scripts for the runlevel you are going into.

Just remove the associated S script from /etc/rc.d/rc3.d or better yet, rename the link to a small s instead of a capital S

OK, Hypothetically you do not want the apache web server running. You could either
cd /etc/rc.d/rc3.d
mv S24httpd s24httpd

Sometimes it is called apache rather than httpd.

Another way would be to use the chkconfig command

chkconfig -del httpd

What services are you looking to turn off?
That would help
