Doug, sorry about the previous post. It did come from this machine, but I
have no idea why or what it is supposed to mean. Please disregard.
You can (probably should) remove ipchains, but it is not necessary to
remove it from disk to disable it. From a root prompt use chkconfig
command to configure what is running.
You can configure (almost?) anything to start itself with init.
