How to make configuration changes without a reboot?

I learned that in order to make changes to the screen saver, 
I had to reboot the computer. Those changes, made by 
sysinstall, appear in /etc/rc.conf.

Is there a way to make such changes take effect without 
rebooting?  (Version 5.3 RELEASE, i386)
