How do I change the Automatic/Manual/Disabled function?!?

After configuring all services, reboot to see the effects of your tweaking.

Note: Do not use msconfig to stop services. It basically is "disabling" a service. Use the above procedure and set to "manual" instead for testing purposes.

If you like, you can also do: Start --> Run --> type in services.msc --> Select OK.

For an easy method of creating multiple Service Configurations, please check out my Windows XP Services Profile Guide.
