After installing a new system I noticed that 'sunrpc' is
installed and turned on by default. I understand this is
suns remote process control daemon, but just what is it for
and is it needed?

Also, the system turned on netbios-ns, -dgm and ssn by default.
Again, they have to do with netbios but is there areason RedHat
would have turned them on by default?
