Close all services not needed (other words in rc.config

if you are willing to to be on the edge use iptables by configuring
SuSEFirewall2 (this is for iptables)

if you want to be on safe side as I am use ipchains and for firewall use
kernel 2.2.19

again you may want to use SuSEfirewall (the other one for ipchains)
adress same as above

I have found for Ipchains firewall setup "pmfirewall" is well organized
just answer couple of questions (of course carefully) and you are ready
to go.

install snort (version 1.8.1 comes out with a nice manual also)
