Hi Rob,
on debian there are a few redhatism that have not been created: this is
one of them. here are a few:
1) rh has runlevels with special meanings, debian makes 2-5 the same
with 2 being the default with no special network/x/etc meaning
2) no 'service ....'instead we use /etc/init.d/service start/stop/restart
and AFAICT no 'status'
3) no tool like the runlevel/services editor in rh. the tools are there
but they dont do it the rh way
there are more.
