How can i remove these services?

I'm using RH9 and these are things listed in the services configurator which i don't *think* i need and want to remove. So far i just have them turned off. Anyone know the package name so i can uninstall them? Another thing not listed here is tcp port 6000 (X11) which shows up when i scan my loopback with nmap. I think i heard it was a font server... How can i stop it other than iptables? Can i remove it, i don't know the package name for that either...

Also does anyone know if ntpd is really needed in in order for me to be able to change the time? I tried to remove ntp but it said it was needed by RH-date & time configurator... RH's time config has a option to use ntp but i don't see why it would require it...

6000 is the X11 ( X Window System) TCP port, so that an X client running on the network can use the services offered by your X server. If you remove it, you will no longer be able to use a GUI. You can pass it the --nolisten-tcp option to turn off the X TCP listener.

rpm -q --whatprovides <packagename-here>
to find the rpm packages you need.

The rest of the services you mentioned can be safely turned off. I would let them stay if I wasn't desperate about disk usage. Maybe later on.. if you feel like turning on one of those, they'll come in handy.
