Dear Julien,

entries in disabled-system-services are used to get rid of scripts and
services that are executed at boot time only. They are located in
/etc/rcS.d and can be disabled by renaming them so that their name
begins with "K" or "#" (Netkit build scripts adopt the latter choice,

Entries in disabled-services are used to disable optional services which
are specific to the default runlevel, and that can be started/stopped by
hand also when the OS is up and running. Disabling happens by means of
the update-rc.d utility, which actually places or removes symbolic links
inside /etc/rc2.d as needed.
