Start by learning an OS that can be secured (Win NT, 2k, XP or any of the *nix distro's). You are definately going to have to read. The Hacking Exposed books are a good start. Read them and secure your comp. as you go along.

Set up a Linux box. Read the AO's tutorials. Don't hesitate to go to Google searching some answers.
I think it's a really good start.
