first I would get for instance chkrootkit from - unzip/untar type 'make sense'
in ./chkrootkit-0.34 and then run ./chkrootkit

This will probably detect the most basic infections/trojans
etc. Read the README file - it explains what it will do for you.

With lsof|grep IPv4 you will be able to see alot of info on
listening programs and open connections - this might show
you if your system is running any servers that you actually
dont know of. I say 'might' because the smarter hacker will
hide his presence by replacing important commands like ls, ps,
netstat and maybe also lsof - in which case you cannot trust
the results anymore. I have found attacks by also checking
for suspicious files in dirs like /tmp and so on. Some silly
script kiddies leave enough info to make it possible to
identify most of their activity - at least thats what I have

Hope this will give you a start.
