You dilly. Of course it doesn't work after you reboot! This will just turn off the HAL daemon until it gets restarted by init when you change runlevels or reboot.
If you want to disable HAL permanently, you will have to remove all the "S"
and "K" haldaemon softlinks in the /etc/rc directories (the "runlevel scripts").
It's not hard or dangerous, but you might want to figure out how the fedora runlevel/init system works (I could explain this in <1000 words; google "/etc/init.d" or "/etc/rc.d") and if necessary what a softlink
is (<200 words).
