cd /etc/rc.d
./rc.nfsd stop would stop NFS server
./rc.httpd stop would stop http daemon
Make sure rc.* have execute permissions (if you want to run them) and dont forget the "./" before the rc filename. ./ - means execute file but im sure you know this already
Hope that helps

Thats probably cuz proftpd is started by another daemon, posibly inetd. Look through rc.inet2 and /etc/inetd.conf and you will find the line that starts the FTP services. Comment it out and send inetd a HUP signal to restart it (or simply restart your box) so it re-reads its configuration. Hope that helps

You EITHER send a HUP or you restart your box.
check the beggining of /etc/inetd.conf and you will find instructions to send a HUP to the server and restart it.
I suggest you read through whole of inetd.conf to see the services it starts so you will know for next time.
