Wrong solution for your system!  For KDE, use KSysv, which should be already
in your System menu as "SysV-init Editor".  If you want to ask a KDE
specific question, it's best to ask on the kubuntu list, as users on this
list will tend to assume gnome (and if you are going to ask here, uppercase
KDE - I expect most readers missed that).

Raid devices is mdadm.  You can't just remove it from your system as the
recent kernels depend on it (bah humbug!), but you should be able to stop
it in RunLevel0 (I'm intentionally not running a recent kernel so that I
don't have to have it, so I can't say for sure).  LVM and EVMS (did it
really say that?  I think it was 'starting enterprise volume management
system' :-) ) are both for logical volume management and started in
RunLevel 0.  If you don't use LVMs you might be able to remove them.
