It's called GKrellM. Should be available in package form for almost every distro.
\"If computers are to become smart enough to design their own successors, initiating a process that will lead to God-like omniscience after a number of ever swifter passages from one generation of computers to the next, someone is going to have to write the software that gets the process going, and humans have given absolutely no evidence of being able to write such software.\" -Jaron Lanier

It's KSim basically.
Open the little hooskerdoo.
System Tools>More System Tools>KSim
That's how it is on mine (RH 9).
It looks a little different than whatever the other one was, but it does the same thing.
Real security doesn't come with an installer.
