generally all system services are started thru /etc/init.d/... scripts, which
are linked to appropriate runlevel directories /etc/rc?.d/..., the default
boot runlevel can be found in /etc/inittab on the line containing initdefault,
... to see whether the service is running at the machine you can use 

netstat -ltu (listen, tcp, udp)

more in nag, lag, etc. they're packaged...
