ptal-init loading at startup

to enable the scanner on my HP PSC1210 printer/scanner/copier, i need to manually type in as root "ptal-init start", then to switch back to print mode, i do "ptal-init stop". It seems to be loading started by default. ANy idea how to make it not load automatically? I use the printer a lot more than i do the scanner.

chkconfig --list ptal-init
If ptal-init features in it, then issue:

chkconfig --level 2345 ptal-init off
This would disable the service startup in levels 2,3,4 & 5. Check the man page for your exact requirement.

In case your dont have chkconfig, try checking netsysv for service management.
