Which Of These Services Can I Safely Turn Off?
 
I got ubuntu 8.04 and I need to know if it's safe to disable the following services. I want to disable as many services as possible to boot up faster. Just to let you know, I use my computer for wireless and dialup, faxing, printing, word processing, mp3, radio listening over the net, DVDs through VLC, Virtualbox, and pop/smtp mail.

Here are the following services I want to disable. Which ones can I safely disable considering what I do with my computer as mentioned above?

- apparmor
- courier-authdaemon
- courier-mta
- dhcdbd
- hal
- killprocs
- libpam-foreground
- makedev
- module-init-tools
- mountoverflowtmp
- policykit
- powernowd
- powernord.early
- procps
- rc.local
- sendsigs
- single
- sl-modem-daemon
- stop-readahead
- sysklogd
- udev
- udev-finish
- ufw
- umountfs
- umountroot
- urandom
- wpa--ifupdown
- x11-common

You've posted this same question before, and your question has been answered before, in another forum.

This is somewhat true, except that I've added more info. And keep in mind that no one has answered any of my follow-up questions on the other thread and therefore, my question hasn't been fully answered. As a result, I have no choice but to ask this question, albeit with added info, in light of the aformentioned reasons. Hope you understand.
