    It's called GKrellM. Should be available in package form for almost every distro.

    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.
