inetd:
If you want to be able to e.g. ssh or ftp into the workstation,
yes, I'd recommend leaving it on :)

fc-cache:
Just makes x-fonts available, doesn't necessarily have to
run every time (I don't think but I may be wrong) ... you could
also give ldconfig on boot a miss if you can remember to
manually run it when you install new software ;)


Cheers,
Tink
