Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What are the errors? If you've uninstalled the package all of the executables should be gone. Were you seeing something like 'No such file or directory'?
If so, check /etc/rc.d/rc.6 & /etc/rc.d/rc.M for lines containing '/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd'. They should be wrapped in checks to see if the file is executable, but if the check has been removed you'll get an error when the script is run.
All the suggestions for your monitor so far have been for X. Does the monitor just blank and not power down? I had the same problem, I think its because, in layman's terms, the kernel doesn't know how to tell your graphics card to signal the monitor to power down, I never found a solution unfortunately
Thank you Oinopion!
