if: The boot time scripts are called init scripts. They are located under /etc/rc.d/init.d under Redhat like distros, /etc/init.d under Debian based distros, and under /etc/rc.d (?) on BSDish ones. Pick up a sample file from one of these directories as a template.

on redhat as root you can

service lpd stop/start/restart

this will stop/start the serviice this time, if you want to change the default on boot use

chkconfig lpd on/off

that will ensure that the service is turned off in all runlevels for all eternity, but will not actually stop the running instance, so if it is currently running and you dont want to ever see ti again

service lpd stop
chkconfig lpd off

and your set

edit files : /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 and comment out the services which you dont wish to start at boot time.

if these files dont exist ( they do on Slackware 8.0 ), run the following command :
egrep -ri '(servicename1|servicename2|...)' /etc

where servicename refers to the service you are looking for, and comment out the lines initializing them at startup in the files found.

if this fails too, just add ' killall -9 servicename ' to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
to kill the service you dont want running. :)
