    ok everything seems to be running ok now, i'm not finding any open ports.
    the files i needed were in /etc/rc.d , they all have the prefix of rc. but renaming certain files to have a ~ before it made the init script skip it.
    the problem of X11 being open for me didn't seem to occur during a graphical login, obviously desktop use was already thought out for this, from the command line i had to type startx -- -nolisten tcp , rather than just startx in order to stop it listening on port 6000.

    the two files i nulled with ~ were rc.inetd and rc.sendmail

    hope this helps anyone in the same situation, and thanks adranaline.

    Sorry about the redhat info this was an older thread and I didn't notice it was a slackware thread. I am glad you figured it out anyway.
    in slackware you are right it is in rc.d
    then I start services like this
    chmod +x rc.vsftpd
    or stop
    chmod -X rc.vsftpd
    or you can
    ./rc.vsftpd start

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
