Question disabling SSH in Slackware 8.1 (the rc.M script maybe?)


Can anyone tell me how to disable the SSH daemon so it does not start up when I boot my system? I am basically using Linux as a personal desktop OS and not as a server, so I figure this is one of those things I don't need running in the background. I read a previous thread about this, but the response was not terribly specific about which script needs to be edited, especially for a Slackware system. Thanks in advance!

chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd

Your rc.inet2 script looks to see if rc.sshd has the executable bit set,
and if it does, it executes the rc.sshd script. changing the bit means you
don't have to edit any scripts, which means you don't have to worry about
messing up anything.
