I blindly added ssh and ftp to the inetd.conf file at install time. Do I need to
remove one or both? Is there a place where one can see which (if any daemons
need to be started in the old way). It seems to me that if the standard sshd
startup has changed then a simple comment in inetd.conf would help to avoid
problems for people like me.
