Is there any way to disable the Windows firewall?

After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, the "Windows firewall" will be enabled by default. I currently use ZoneAlarm and am quite happy with it. Is there any way to disable the Windows firewall?
Yes. Visit the firewall configuration page and uncheck the box.
