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

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.
