   Below are the steps you can take to dismantle your jumpstart server.
Thanks for the confirmation from those who replied.  While steps 1-3 were
the obvious to me, I've included them in my summary.

1. Stop the jumpstart shares.
2. Comment out tfptboot from the
3. kill -HUP inet_pid
4. Delete following files/directories:
/etc/ethers <--file
/etc/bootparams <--file
/jumpstart <--directory(note: /jumpstart may be something else on your server)

NOTE:You can also remove the IPs of the servers that you jumpstart from
the /etc/hosts file if you wish.

Thanks to:
Darren Dunham
David Foster
William Enestvedt
John Douglass
and whomever may still reply.
