For turning it off immediately
service iptables stop
&
For keeping it switched off for next restart in mentioned run-levels.
chkconfig --level 345 iptables off

service iptables status
or
service --status-all | grep stopped

& check whether its being listed in stopped services or not.

Look for word firewall.

[infernal@fedora .Azureus]$ sudo /sbin/service --status-all|grep -i firewall
cat: /var/run/dhcdbd.pid: No such file or directory
Device not specified in /etc/sysconfig/diskdump
Firewall is stopped. <<<<
rndc: connect failed: connection refused
Server address not specified in /etc/sysconfig/netdump

yeah the firewall is stopped
the rest i don't know what they are..
