    type "rc-update del [SERVICE] [GROUP] where service is the name of the service you want to stop, and group is the group it is in (eg, boot, default, nonetwork)
    adding a service is identical to above, replacing "del" with "add"
    Ok, thanks a bunch for your help. I am going to try that when I get off of work tonight. And I guess I can probably google services if I am not sure what they do. Ill update my progress later

    Ok I tried the command to list services and I think may be in over my head It listed a group of BOOT services and DEFAULT services. I googled a few, I think if i remove acpid service it may speed me up; but then again I dont know. Here they are:

    BOOT

    acpid
    bootmisc
    checkfs
    checkroot
    clock
    console font
    hostname
    hotplug
    keymaps
    localmount
    modules
    net.lo
    rwlogin
    serial
    urandom
    x-setup

    DEFAULT

    alsasound
    avahi-daemon
    dbus
    dhcdbd
    gpm
    hald
    local
    netmount
    networkmanager
    splash
    syslog-ng
    vixie-cron
    xdm

    Keep in mind I do no networking and dont plan to in the future. I only download, surf, IM, game every now and then, listen to music/radio, watch movies. I don't run any servers or do remote assistance or connect multiple PCs. What services should I take off?

    Techzilla, my wireless card is a Broadcom BCM 4306 802.11 b/g. And my computer model is HP ze4900 (upgraded ram). If that did not answer your question then I'm afraid I don't know what chipset I have, sorry.
    Thanks for the replies!

    To tell you the truth, you don't have a whole lot of unneeded services, you could remove acpi, it's mostly for sleep/hibernating, I don't use it myself because I get some errors when I do. I think you can remove rwlogin safely.

    I am guessing that you have the correct Video drivers installed or beryl/compiz would not work correctly. Post the output of this command please
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep Driver
    So you might consider removing unused/unneeded kernel modules.
    Code:
    lsmod
    will show you which modules are active, but you need to Google those to make sure you don't need them.
    EDIT: to remove unneeded modules use the rmmod command
    Code:
    rmmod modulename
    How slow is your machine? On a scale of one to ten? Do you have plenty of swap space and RAM? Issue the free command to check swap and free memory.
    Code:
