System Settings-->Services.

Some of the obvious ones, if you want a simple desktop, to shut off are

httpd, gssftp, ldap, rsh, tftp, wu-ftp, telnet, xinetd, etc.

If you click on one of them there is a short description. Where obvious, like you aren't on a laptop, then apmd (monitor batter status) isn't needed. Where you are not sure, repost, and I/others will help out further.

can us Mandrake users do this too? Or is this strictly a RedHat thing?

Micro420. No, it is not just a Redhat thing. They can all run the above services. The ONLY difference is that the GUI tool to turn services off if named/found different. It is even easier with Mandrake because they document what each service is a little more thoroughly.
