Boot-Up Manager


I use it for the (rc2.d) service level that I normally boot-up with and
'update-rc.d -f <service name> remove' for rcS.d, rc0.d and rc6.d services
that the program will not remove. BUM will not allow the removal from
these three levels. 

'update-rc.d' must be used with 'sudo' or
logged in as root. Be careful with messing around with the service levels
I specifically mentioned. If you don't know what you are doing and remove
a needed or vital service, your system may not boot-up or become very
unstable. Lastly, updates can cause removed services to come back using
this method, so it's normal to have to do this repeatedly over time.
