Not a problem. We all learn through mistakes. ;)

If you look carefully, I think the name of the service is fnfxd, not 
fnfx. You can look at the service name if you do,

# chkconfig --list | grep fnfx

If my assertion is correct try this,

# chkconfig fnfxd off

I believe it gets stuck again since your first attempt didn't turn off 
the faulty fnfxd daemon.

In interactive mode before the daemon tries to start, it prompts whether 
you want to skip it. Just skip the daemon which hangs all the time. If 
the above step goes well, this shouldn't be necessary.
