Debian chkconfig

Simple question that was on my mind for some time – what is RedHat/Fedora’s chkconfig equivalent?  sysv-rc-conf is the answer.  Not installed by default, simple apt-get solves that.  Syntax is almost identical to what I remember.  However also keep in mind that runlevels are not necessarily the same across different distributions.  If my memory serves me correctly, runlevels 1 and 6 are the only that are guaranteed to be identical on all platforms, although 3 and 5 are usually multi-user mode without and with X respectively.  Hope this may help a few of you!
