Actually, the personal-firewall doesn't run if you have nothing in
/etc/rc.config.d/security.rc.config (the variable is empty or "off"). The
scripts run, but it doesn't do anything that you could notice afterwards.

Removing the package (rpm -e personal-firewall) should also remove the
init scripts, provided that you didn't change them. If they are still
there, remove them, but don't forget the symlinks. Let the symlinks be
handled by the insserv command.
