Selective startup

Hey all,

I've recently installed Red Hat 9 and am slowly making the transition from windows to linux. I installed it on my laptop:

P3 500
128 Mb ram
20 Gb hard drive.
494 Mb swap

My problem is that when I load up Red Hat, the system uses about 118 Mb of 123 Mb of my memory. This gives me next to nothing to actually run applications, and makes Red Hat slow.

I was wondering if there was a similar tool to 'services.msc' on windows nt based systems for linux, and which services do I actually need as a minimum.

I'm guessing this is the solution to my problem, but I'd be happy to hear any suggestions.
