Use rcconf to edit startup/init.d/init scripts on Debian/Ubuntu based distributions

I've never understood how to enable and disable services for different run levels in Debian based distros, it's just weird, annoying and doesn't make sense.  I much prefer chkconfig from RHEL.

Just install the package called 'rcconf' and be done with it.  rcconf makes things easy for you.
