Cool, good idea.
I'll take a not-very-expert crack at this:

you can kill kudzu if you're not going to be installing 
new hardware while recording :-)

i'd leave that alone, logs are always good to have...

dunno. Do you use any network filesystems?

I'd probably leave it alone, not sure.

I don't think this actually does anything after startup.

is this even a laptop?

> apmd            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

don't need it.

probably don't need it if you're running X and/or don't care
about mouse on console, UNLESS your X is configured to use /dev/gmpdata
for its mouse events.

not needed unless you use network filesystems.

> iptables        0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off         

firewall stuff... I'd leave it on unless networking is off...
but then maybe it's another run-once-at-startup script.

> isdn            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

do you really have an ISDN card? :-)

> sshd            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Maybe not necessary, but can be handy to have another box
ssh'd in if you manage to lock up under X.

> portmap         0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

i think you need that if networking is up.

nfs again...

don't really need it.

kill em both.

> xfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

need that for X.

not needed unless you think you're going to want random network services
being launched on demand ...

> cups            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

printing, do you need that?

presumably you want these :)
