That is not correct. And please quote in context.

Chkconfig is responsible for setting up the links in /etc/rcX.d.
I am not sure whether it aktually stops services in use. It seems
you use an RH based distribution. If this is so, take a look at
/etc/rc.d/rc. There is a section in it that runs the KILL scripts
before running the START scripts. You might have to cut these
sections and paste into a script file and then run the file.
