Another way to do this of course is to just use chkconfig:

chkconfig SERVICE on|off

man chkconfig for more options. You can use it to easily control which 
run levels things start in as well, so it's very handy if you only want 
certain things at certain run levels.

CentOS uses chkconfig by default - you may need to install an extra 
package to get it, not sure as I'm not at home where my 14.x system is. :-)
