how to turn off unwanted services in FC5
i have installed FC5 on my P4 1.8 GHz 512MB RAM. while installing the OS i opted for for almost all of the servers and services. where can i get all the services/servers/environments i registered to and how to deactivate them. i dont want to remove them permanently.

Get a list of all active services:

# chkconfig --list | grep on
Deactivate the services you don't need:

# chkconfig servicename off

You can also run ntsysv or system-config-services and disable the services you do not need.

thanx alot fellows. i did it this time.
One more problem. My system is working slow as well. especially on FC5. Windows XP is working ok. What may be the problem? closest i could get to this is that i have XP installed on primary master IDE hard disk and FC 5 on Primary Slave IDE. is this the problem?
