    Exclamation automount and hald, and optimising memory usage

    I just got this cpanel/whm vps and Im looking over my running processes with htop and I'm seeing a few processes which seem strange for a vps: severla automounts , hald, and yum-updatesd.

    Do i need these, if not how can I disable them, and ummm.. after doing and cut and paste optimization of apache and mysql how can I lower memory usage of my VPS? currently im using like 171/249MB RAM...
