I think i have understood the basics of tripwire.
Aide's docu is not very verbose, to say the least -
they say they provide some better functionality that
tw, but maybe this refers to an older version of tw...

1) What are the advantages/disadvantages of tripwire/aide respectively?
2) did i get it right that it's best to start with the provided conf
examples and then get rid of entries causing false alarms?
3) are there other options to think about than monitoring inclusions/

Thanx for your help,

PS. Bear with me, i'm relatively newbie (fought my way through
installing mutt, postfix, snort, AntiVir, AVMailGate, nessus in the last
couple of weeks tho) and this is my first posting to the list...
I bet i'll come back with more detailed questions...
