Redhat comes with a kind of service monitor where you start/stop services, and view which ones are running.  I am not running Redhat, but I was wondering if there was a program out there that did kind of the same thing that I could install on my server.

In that case you won't have a tool like RedHat's services manager. I don't know if Linuxfromscratch uses the SysV init script mechanism or not. If it does it may have 'chkconfig' which is a command line method of managing services.

I installed chkconfig on the server.

It appears that chkconfig is just a tool for managing the symlinks in the /etc/rc.d/rcX.d/ directories.  For instance, if I run
chkconfig proftpd off
It will remove the 'start' symlinks in runlevels 3,4, and 5, and replace them with 'kill' symlinks.

chkconfig doesnt actually start or stop services, and it doesn't tell me which services are currently running (unless I'm missing something).

'chkconfig --list' will show you what services are enabled or disabled. You can always stop or start a specifiv service with '/etc/init.d/service-name stop|start'
