In Red Hat linux (or Fedora Core), the way to add/remove programs from the list of those to start upon bootup is by running the command ntsysv. Just run it from any old terminal (as root) and it shows a list of startup daemons. Just check the (additional) ones you want and uncheck the ones you don't want anymore. The changes will be reflected upon the next reboot. It's a good idea to check to see what each one does before blindly disabling or enabling it. By eliminating the unneeded startup daemons, you can make your computer's bootup much quicker.
