SuSE chkconfig vs. insserv

I got confused: should I use insserv or chkconfig on SLES? How do they differ?

Apparently, chkconfig is a perl wrapper to insserv, which actually mimics chkconfig very well.

    @daedlus: As far as I understand, insserv is the native suse way. chkconfig is just a wrapper.

    So all in all, using insserv sounds better.

    However, chkconfig seems to work very well, so I prefer using it in my automated scripts, so the same script would work both on RedHat and SuSE.
