Configuring Services in Ubuntu

Ubuntu's Services' applet is quite frankly horrible. In Centos/Fedora/RHEL at least I can refer to chkconfig in CLI or the straight-forward Services applet. In Ubuntu there also two tools but not installed by deafult:
  1. sysv-rc-conf provides a curses interfaces to easy management of services.
  2. Bum (Boot Up Manager) is its GUI equivalent.
Both are available from the repos.
