if it works i dont think its bad.  BUT by renaming the link the program
would still run (unless theres something in init that doesnt run files
that start with "no" i dont know)  renaming the script itself in
/etc/init.d would work for sure though.

thre have been posts saying to use the command update-rc.d
(something) maybe update-rc.d remove xdm i forget (man update-rc.d ?) old
habbits die very very hard for me though :>
