    Built in SMS app -> Menu -> Settings -> Received messaged.

    Uncheck the uppermost setting, the last settings should then grey out.

    Open stock messaging from there hit menu>settings>received notification (uncheck this box).

    You also may want to uncheck the failure notification too.

    I have to say that after multiple tries with both Handcent and Chomp I have always reverted back to stock.

    Handcent and Chomp are, in my limited experience, unstable battery hogs.

    As to the original question, you cannot disable the stock SMS App completely. The system (and Handcent) needs it to work in order to function properly.
