side effects of removing certain services

I have a standalone box running FC4 on a cable modem that does not need to share files using nfs or samba. Can I uninstall (or just shut down) netfs completely and still have intra-system sockets? How about portmap?

Why don't you just stop and disable the samba and nfs services? You can probably also stop portmap. Anyway just try it and see if anything breaks

And put up a firewall if u don't already have one.

Yeah, that seems to work and I don't notice anything else NOT working. OK, thanks. Issue resolved.
