In general, it doesn't matter where in the config file you add parameters. The comment headings are just for your convenience. Also, if a parameter doesn't appear it will just have its default value which you can find from the documentation or by running a query like:

show parameter log_archive_start

As of Oracle 10g the parameter log_archive_start is deprecated. To disable archive mode you run the following command while in the mount state (ie not open):

alter database noarchivelog;

Please remove the "log_archive_start=false" parameter all together.

Restart in MOUNT mode (not nomount)
Then

alter database noarchivelog;

Next

alter database openn;
