open ports

I am relatively new to mandrake.. I did a scan of my box using nmap.. and found lots of ports open I do not want/need, but I am not finding what file to edit to kill these ports. I thought it was init.d or something like that.. but no luck there. where should I be looking to shutdown some of these ports/services? mandrake 10.1 system.

You can see which services are using the ports with:
netstat -nlp
