How to do it ?

edit /etc/inetd.conf or /etc/xinetd.conf (or whatever program you
are using) and find the line containing netstat. Put a # in the
first column of this file and save it.

next enter "rcinetd reload" in your root shell. If you have an
ancient SuSE machine the command is /sbin/init.d/inetd reload. Or
endure a reboot.
