As root user open fstab go to the end of the last line of text and press enter to create a new blank line at the bottom, then save the file.

To stop services from running on boot simply move the relevant symlinks out of /etc/rc.d/rcX.d where X is the run level you want to stop the services at and put them in another directory - for exampe

mkdir /etc/removed_services


mv /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S20random /etc/removed_services

this symlink is now not in the run-level 5 directory hence the service wont start in runlevel 5 on boot up.
