Unhappy annoyed with fam and portmap. help :P

hi. again.

i browsed through these forums, in the hope that i would find
some tips on shutting down services and scheduled jobs.
i found a tip on how to disable certain services from starting,
and did the following:

chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd
chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.apache
chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.serial
chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia
chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm
chmod 000 /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2

then, when i rebooted, i noticed that fam was not working.
previous experience had taught me that fam needed portmap
to function. so i did:

chmod 775 /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2

then i edited rc.inet2, and commented out the services
i did not want to have running, except for portmap, since
fam needed that to work.

i then rebooted, but fam still does not work.
my files in nautilus are not updated.

how do i solve this?

You are running dropline right?? the fam entry is in /etc/inetd.conf. You must of commented out to start inetd in your rc.inet2

Also, you probably are going to want gpm if you go into the console alot, that is just so your mouse works in it.
