I have a mandrake 10 server setup with the security settings set at the maximum. can anyone tell me where i can find a complete resource that details linux security settings and where and how to change them so i can understand the system better and relax some settings.

I like this tool for security linux: - it also has good documentation as to what it's doing to secure your system!
http://www.bastille-linux.org/

Misc info:
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html_single/Security-HOWTO.html

The default security settings that Mandrake does even @ paranoid are not as drastic as you'll find with Bastille. They are more to prevent remote compromises versus those that are local.
