Just FYI, to perform this task I use the sysv-rc-conf program (included on the
package with the same name):

  # sysv-rc-conf foobar off

The advantage of using this program instead of doing things manually is that
if you re-enable the service:

  # sysv-rc-conf foobar on

the rc.d links are returned to the status they had before the 'off' call.
