    First of all, what you want to do is go to your /etc/profile file with root and put
    alias startx='startx -- -nolisten tcp'
    This command will stop the x server from listening when x is invoked...Im guessing you don't need any of these daemons ? So what I usually do is not only disable the daemon from listening, but delete it entirely if im sure i'll never need it again, and so it won't get activated somehow by accident, better safe than sorry...One thing to remember is to keep your programs current, so later on in the future if you decide you might want a mail server or an sshd listening, you can go to their website and grab the latest copy...Also, if you haven't already do(as root) a
    echo "ALL:ALL" >> /etc/hosts.deny
    ..Also read up on iptables and other methods of filtering...Hope i helped..

    Basically IMHO the runlevel editor is your best option. YaST has a runlevel editor built in.

    I like this option because it allows you to setup custom runlevels. Change your services by doing nothing more than init X...

    You have SuSE 8.1, is it the box set or just the iso's?

    While the problem might have been solved this way, allow me to also add an opinion here for the SuSE linux, so that others would know what todo.

    SuSE linux can start and stop all services individually by typing in:

    rcsshd start/stop #start or stop the ssh deamon
    rcinetd start/stop #start or stop the super daemon (inet daemon)
    rcpostfix start/stop #start or stop the mail daemon (that is if you use postfix)
    rcSuSEfirewall2 start/stop/reload/etc... #to start or stop or reload the SuSE firewall

    These are just example services. Always type in rc and the first few letters of the service, then when hitting the 'tab' button, it will autocomplete the service, followed by start/stop/restart/reload etc.... depending on what parameters the given service can respond to.

    Cheers.
