You can check it on one of the services provided by xinetd. Look at the discard-stream file. Then run "chkconfig discard-stream on" and see how it changed. Also, from the chkconfig man page: chkconfig also can manage xinetd scripts via the means of xinetd.d configuration files. Note that only the on, off, and --list commands are supported for xinetd.d services. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
