about hosts on your network, perhaps including
Windows shares. Some versions have security
problems. Part of kdenetwork utilities.
lm_sensors - off Monitor system sensors such as CPU and
mDNSResponder - off Publishes and browses available network

mysqld - off A crash prone, slow, non-standard SQL
named - off A DNS server.
netdump - off Only for diagnosing kernel crashes.
netfs - off Automatically Mounts and unmounts all Network
File System (NFS), SMB/CIFS (Lan
Manager/Windows), and NCP (NetWare) mount points.
This is the only thing you need if you are an NFS
client (e.g. not an NFS server), since netfs will
run any other necessary daemons. Netfs may
automatically handle everything necessary for the
other (non-NFS) protocols, but I've only tested
it with NFS. Disable this if you don't use NFS,
Samba, or NetWare.
netplugd - off Automatic recognition of active/inactive
network - on if you have an Ethernet connection. Off for
nfs - off Network File System. Only on to allows other
unix systems to share your hard drive (volume, file system). Not
necessary if you are a client to a shared volume.

Disable if you aren't using NFS. Required by nfs.
nifd - off Network interface monitor. Calls
mDNSResponder if your IP address changes.
nscd - off Nscd provides cacheing for the passwd(5),

portmap - off Netfs will start portmap as necessary.
Portmap is DARPA port to RPC program number
mapper. Required if you are an nfs client or
server (although netfs starts portmap for
clients, so you don't need it explicitly
enabled). If you're not using NFS or NIS, then
you should disable portmap. Some (?) versions of
portmap are highly insecure. You can run `rpcinfo
-p $hostname` against your system to see what
additional services it is providing. More info
postgresql - off The most powerful, fastest, easiest to use SQL
database. Robust and has excellent documentation.
psacct - off Daemon used by several utilities for monitoring process
activities, including ac, lastcomm, accton, and sa.
readahead - off The readahead process preloads the buffer
cache with files that might be paged in one 'page
demand triggered' read at a time. This can speed
things up of boxes with enough memory. Config
file is: /etc/readahead.files

winbind - off Related to Samba.
xfs - on X Windows font server. Use by X windows to
support a graphical desktop (including KDE and Gnome)
xinetd - on Super daemon (aka super server), launches network related daemons
ypbind - off Disabled unless you are using and NIS server, usually
for password authentication
