Summary

Aside from starting servers manually, most Linux distributions support three methods of launching servers: via SysV startup scripts, via a super server, and via local startup scripts. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Server packages frequently ship with SysV startup script files or xinetd configuration files, so activating a server once you've installed it takes little or no effort. When you do have to change a configuration, tools such as chkconfig and ksysv can help, particularly with servers run from SysV startup scripts. More extensive changes may require creating unusual super server configurations or local startup script entries for your server.
