    first of all, edit your /etc/services
    and comemnt all the ports you don't need..
    add a # in front of the port's line...

    #telnet 23/tcp

    for instance... hope this helps..

    From the command line in RedHat, you can run the command "ntsysv" and turn off services that you don't need. If you know the ports that are used, this is a very handy way to do it.
