Stop sendmail service

In Linux either I type setup in command will prompt dos based gui and i can disable the sendmail service from auto run on boot...but how to disable some service in solaris8? such as ssh, ftp and sendmail?
Who is Participating?
in /etc/rc2.d you will see the startup script for sendmail, simply rename it
mv /etc/rc2.d/S88sendmail /etc/rc2.d/not88sendmail
That will prevent it from starting on the next boot
simply running
/etc/rc2.d/S88sendmail stop
will stop it
ftp / telnet and sometimes ssh are a bit different.  They are spawned from inetd.
So you need to comment them out of /etc/inetd.conf and then restart inetd
Services should either be started via inetd, or from startup scripts in /etc/rc2.d and /etc/rc3.d

i found this in my solaris8....which one need to be rename?

there should be one in rc2.d
the K scripts stop sendmail as the system is coming down.
the init.d script is the actual start / stop script and /etc/rc2.d/S88sendmail is often linked to that.  What is in rc2.d?
