Enabling or disabling service on start-up in debian

To enable a service on start-up, assuming /etc/init.d/<service> file exists use:

update-rc.d <service_name> defaults

To disable a service from start-up use:

update-rc.d <service_name> remove

A ncurses based tool named 'rcconf' can be used to get interface equivalent to 'setup' for configuring start-up applications.
