Hello!

I have just installed Redhat and have not used Linx before so I have some questions:

How do I get a good secuety running the newest RedHat?
How do I refuse All who tries to telnet to my computer and how do I accept only ssh? I like to run the apashe www-server and ftp server. And how do I give a oter user premission to add a new user (if he is not root>) ?
What is most important to get a good securety??
I like to run olwm. What shall I do t gret it to work?

Thats a bunch of questions:
1)  Leave the securetty the way it is -- it won't allow root
    logins via telnet, and that is the way it should be.
2)  To refuse all telnets?  Just kill the in.telnetd process ID
3)  The Apache web server & WU-FTPD servers are standard (& easy)
4)  You could give another user UID 0 and he'd have root privs,
    but I highly recommend that you do NOT do this.
5)  The standard Window Manager that comes with RH 4.1 is
    FVWM2-95 (*gag*).  Just install Xview and associated
    packages, and change your xinitrc to olwm instead of
    fvwm.
