There are a couple of things to do:

1.  /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs stop

This will stop automounter services.  But the service will probably
come up again on reboot, so you would want to do:

2. chkconfig --level 2345 autofs off

This will remove autofs from starting in runlevels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

You could always kill the pid, but with alot of these daemons, a HUP
signal merely means reread config file and restart... 

Also, if you're into the GUI config thingys, you could try
'serviceconf' as root (I dunno if it's included in FC4, it's on my FC5

Fedora is alright, but I wish redhat would include documentation on
this stuff, because they change it seemingly with every new release.

But chkconfig has been around as long as I have been playing with
redhat, and I think it will almost always be around, so that is the way
that I usually configure services.



I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
