Just go into the /etc/xinetd.d/ folder and vi the file for swat and change enable = no to yes. same with all the other things you need to activate.
the change is basically from a "flat file" where you uncomment the line you need, to a file for each service which is found under /etc/xinetd.d/
Hope that answers your Q
