I'm preparing a new server that is running CentOS5.1 x86_64 on the HN. I installed the HN from the CentOS DVD installation disk with the bare minimum features. Even so, I still ended up with a whole lot of services running and enabled on the HN.

I'd like to have very little running on the HN besides sshd, iptables, vz, and any other necessary services (network, crond, etc.). Below is a list of the services as they are right now. Can anyone tell me what in this list is safe to disable?

It's safe to disable any service in this list. You should personally decide what kind of functionality you expect from your setup and turn all the rest off.
