Better way to manage services in Ubuntu with rcconf

I want to prevent apache2 from autostart but update-rc.d is not let me do that. Look like update-rc.d is only for install and remove scripts[ not for update ].

pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ ls /etc/rc2.d
README S20hotkey-setup S89cron
S05vbesave S20makedev S90binfmt-support
S10powernowd.early S20nvidia-kernel S91apache2
S10sysklogd S20privoxy S98usplash
S10xserver-xorg-input-wacom S20rsync S99acpi-support
S11klogd S20tor S99rc.local
S12dbus S50acpid S99rmnologin
S13gdm S89anacron S99stop-readahead
S20apport S89atd
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo update-rc.d apache2 stop 91 0 1 2 6 .
System startup links for /etc/init.d/apache2 already exist.
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$
rcconf, the debian runlevel configuration tool, is more suit for this job. Let's install and run it from teminal.
pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo aptitude install rcconf

rcconf give easy interface to select which service should start in current run level.
