/etc/init.d/ - add/remove services

What is the preferred way to add or remove a /etc/init.d/ service from certain 

The Debian Policy Manual and man pages suggest I should use update-rc.d rather 
than manipulate the symlinks directly.  The man page for update-rc.d says, 
"If  any  files  /etc/rcrunlevel.d/[SK]??name already exist then update-rc.d 			
does nothing."  What do I do to remove a service from a particular run-level?

I have searched around and in the past, people have suggested to just 
manipulate the symlinks directly.  Is this still the case?

I apologize if I have missed something obvious here!
