Want to know what that service does?

I regularly run services I don’t need…until I find out what they do.  After that, I immediately (or semi-immediately) turn them off.  I was perusing Red Hat Magazine today and found a neat article that details just about every System V service available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This list should be pretty applicable for Fedora Core 6 as well.  I looked at a few of the items on the list and those were explained pretty well.
