It looks much better. Here are some minor points based on a comparision with
the RedHat 9 services tool:

1. The checkbox column should have a column title. It's not clear what the
checkbox means.
2. It would be nice if the service description for the currently-selected
service was shown in that first screen,
   so people can browse through them without opening a secondary dialog for
each one.
3. It looks like we have to start the service by
   - selecting it and opening the details dialog.
   - selecting "start" as the parameter.
   - clicking the "execute" button.
   Can't we just have "start" and "stop" buttons?
4. I guess we would have to investigate the "Graphical Mode" and "Less
Options" things in the actual release.
