    In Panther:
    Open System Preferences and click the Sharing panel. Uncheck Apple Remote Desktop.

    Don't know about Jaguar because I can't remember if there is a setting or not.

    I'm not the admin

    Unfortunately, I am not the admin, so I do not have access to the sharing pane.

    Sorry, then no. If you are a limited user you won't be able to even kill it from the Terminal without the admin password.

    You ask the administrator of the machine for his/her password.
