    Going to Install RH8.0 this weekend

    Hello Everyone,

    I am a Windows guru, but really want to learn Linux. I have toyed with Linux in the past, but would consider myself still a newbie.

    In the Windows world I can just navigate and do things. However, in Linux so much is different, well, it is like starting all over again.

    Can you all point me to the best websites for Redhat including "best practices" and good policies for securing and administrating a Linux world?

    Any advice?

    Best advice is only run with root privileges for the few commands you actually need to. Don't get into the habit of starting a root shell and doing normal work. It's a pain in the ass signing in and out, but your chance of malware issues are massively reduced.
