Im in the process of trying to switch from windows to linux. the part of securing linux is killing me though. I have a couple of questions. First off, do I need a firewall with linux and if so where can I find a good one. I've been searching for this information but all i could find was info on firewalls for servers. Second question, where can I go to find information about linux to get me started? The man pages and howto's are alot of information to sort through when you really don't know what your looking for. I need something for linux newbies to get me going.
