Rather than delete/recreate the link, I'd move the S link to an s link 
(e.g., S20ssh to s20ssh).  That will keep /etc/init.d/rc from running it 
but keeps its start order and target within easy reach.

Besides runlevel 2, you might look at 0, 1, and 6 to see if you need to 
do the same to K links.  Usually it won't hurt to stop a stopped service 
but maybe it will matter occasionally.
