Using /etc/default is Just Plain Wrong, because it prevents you from
starting the service at any other time, too. The *correct* way to stop a
service from starting at boot is to modify the symlinks in /etc/rcN.d.
sysv-rc-conf is available (amongst other tools) to manipulate the symlinks
on your behalf if you're not comfortable doing it by hand. update-rc.d is
not recommended, due to being a mighty poor UI for the command line.
