Default firewall install Red Hat 9?
I've recently installed RedHat 9 - and being a newbie to Linux I haven't yet learned all I need to know in order to selectively configure.
As such, on this install I chose to go with the 'desktop' & "high Firewall. I added KDE option, and System Tools, no games (though the install added a number of them anyway??)
I was looking for a bit of reassurance - is this sufficient to give me a good level of protection while I'm learning to use Linux more effectively? Being a 'gui dependent windows defector' I'm finding the learning process a bit daunting right now - I'm fearful that I may, in my ignorance, jeoporadize my system while I'm still in the learning phase.
Living in hope of a reply :D
PS - I do know to never log on as root .
