Debian equivalent of RPM based system commands

rpm based deb based
ntsysv/chkconfig sysv-rc-conf
service httpd start invoke-rc.d apache2 start
rpm -q dpkg-query -W
rpm -qf dpkg -S
rpm -ql dpkg -L
rpm -qi dpkg -p
yum info apt-cache show

rpm -qi shows Vendor so you can see who built the package and usually what repository it came from. To see similar info with Debian use 'apt-cache policy package' This will show an http:// url so you can tell what source it came from.
