You could boot up in a run level that doesn't run much, such as run
level 1, use the chkconfig command to disable a service, then switch to
a normal run level.

Go into the GRUB menu when your system starts to boot, and stick a 1
after the kernel line. 

e.g kernel /vmlinuz-something... ro root=LABEL=max/ 1

Continue booting, use chkconfig

e.g. chkconfig tomcat off

Continue into a normal run level

e.g. telinit 5

(This box runs Centos 5.0, my others still run FC 4, 5, 6, & 7, in case that's
 important to the thread.)
