As root you can run pkgtool from console. This will allow you to run some of the configuration scripts. One of them is services where you can choose what you want to run. The other and probably better alternative is to go to /etc/rc.d directory and look through all the available scripts that are being run. Most of them are self explanatory if you read them carefully. That way you will know exactly what is going on on your system. You can also read through the Slack book that comes on one of the distro or it is on line at the slackware site.

No problem. Glad I could help. I think you will find the Slack book to have alot of useful information. Also just reading through these types of forums every day for questions and solutions.

Adding to what Ringwraith said - one way of stopping certain services from starting on boot up is to:

cd into

/etc/rc.d

then

chmod a-x rc.httpd

or

chmod a-x rc.pcmcia

for example
