You can add local applications that you would like to start during the boot to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

If you mean system services type stuff, pretty much everything is started by a script in the /etc/rc.d directory. There are scripts that are specific to each runlevel (rc.0, rc.4, rc.6, rc.K, rc.M, rc.S, rc.local).

Scripts for a specific service such as apache (rc.httpd), MySQL (rc.mysql) etc can have the executable bit set/unset (with chmod +x and chmod -x) to determine wether they are run during bootup.
