That makes perfect sense to me. I was pretty sure that was generally
how it's done, I just didn't know which was the default runlevel and
wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing before I started
deleting symlinks in there.

I suppose a GUI with checkboxes for which services you want to run
would be easier, but if I understand what you're talking about, it's
"easy enough". :) I'm a lot closer to the Joe User end of the scale
than developers or sysadmins and such.
