Solaris < 10:

Edit /etc/inetd.conf, comment out the relevant lines (shell, login, exec) and restart inetd:
Find the PID of inetd using "ps -ef | grep inetd |grep -v grep" (the PID is in the second column) and issue
"kill- HUP PID".

Solaris > 10:

Use inetadm. "inetadm -p" will ist the services, "inetadm -d service" will disable them.

Linux:

It depends on whether you're using inetd or xinetd.

With inetd it's the same as with Solaris < 10, with xinetd go to /etc/xinetd.d, search the relevant files there and change "DISABLE" to "yes" inside using an editor. When finished issue "/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart"
