Run-level editor in 8.0

The run-level editor in SuSE 8.0 always switches port mapper on
because it assumes that it's needed by inetd. But I have no
service in my inetd.conf at all which needs portmapper.

Since portmapper is one of the most evil beasts regarding security
this behaviour of the Yast2 run-level editor is complete bullshit!

Ciao, Michael.
