[PlanetCCRMA] too many processes?

Hi all,
first up must say a big thanks to everyone who works
on ccrma, its the first audio linux i managed to get
working and it has obviously had a lot of work put
into it!

I have tried to avoid asking too many newbie questions
here, instead spending rather a lot of time reading
all the ldp.org files and various other linux web
resources. However I have come up against a strange
problem and since Im still a newbie i wonder if
someone more experienced could help?

I have installed RH7.3 with CCRMA downloaded as iso's
from the end of october, all my various playing around
has lead to various crashes and I suspect that
something hasnt "cleaned up" after itself. Currently I
always log in as root to achieve the correct
scheduling for realtime operation, however MUSE seems
to open itself up also! I have run top and the gnome
system monitor, shut down the appropriate processes
and rebooted various times, each time though MUSE
reappears. I suspect the problem isnt just with MUSE
because I do seem to have quite a lot of processes
running when I look in the system monitor. Infact
currently my 256mb of ram seem to be 83 percent used

So my questions:

Can someone give me an idea of how to stop this
process auto running each time i boot?

Is it ususal to have over 20 processes running even
after just booting the machine and viewing the desktop
and having run no other software?

Thanks in advance for any advice...
