    This is not so much a Webmin question as it is a Linux question, but Webmin makes it *really* easy!!

    In Webmin, got to menu Server/Software Packages

    Enter the program you want to remove in the search box, and you can select and remove packages from there.

    I prefer to disable programs instead of removing them. For most services, you can disable on boot up  through the System / Bootup and Shutdown menu. This is particularly useful for Virtualmin, which requires several program that we don't use in our environment.

    Hope that helps!

    in webmin, just go the the menu category for "Bootup and Shutdown" (select). then in the list you can choice select turn off and run/not run at boot. real simple and easy. no problem.
