Starting inetd

I edited some of the options in inted.conf and want to restart it. So I searched my processes to get the pid, "ps -auwx | grep inetd" and the only inetd process running is:
root 515 0.0 0.8 1316 520 ? S 04:36 0:00 inetd start
so it is not running is it? If it were wouldn't there be a process like "(inetd)"
How do I get it to start?
Thank you.

All those years (short) years ago when I was a bigger n00b than I am today and building my first Red Hat 7.3 server my friends used to respond to me "RTFMP" Which is supposed to mean (sa I didn't figure out until much later) Read the F***ing Man Page. I know how incredibly aggrivating it was for me, so instead I give you this:
if you are using xinetd.

And this if you are using Inet:

(neat script to do it automagically):

Hope it helps,

Which distro are you using?

Does it use inetd or xinetd? (I assume from your post inetd, but please confirm.)

Which of TFM's have you already R'd?
