Hey Melanie,

Disabling it in the config will do. Do not
forget to disable the SetOutputFilter or AddOutputFilterByType
directives and extended logging in case you use that.
Afterwards, test your config with "apachectl configtest"
(or httpd -t) and then do a restart of the server
(graceful restart is enough to reload the config).

To check mod_deflate is really disabled, issue requests 
in your browser and check the traffic with tcpdump or
any other means.

On a linux system, run the following for a port 80 server:
tcpdump  -A -s 0 port 80

then watch out for the following response headers:

	Vary: Accept-Encoding
	Content-Encoding: gzip
