HAHA, this is a good one... ZoneAlarm...
uhrm.. sorry, didnt mean to make fun of you.. But Linux has FAR more advanced and secure firewall alrady built in. You dont need crappy ZoneAlarm. In MD it's probably already setup to some reasonable security, and im sure MD has some tools to set it up further if you need to. If not you can learn it yourself, read up on IPtables or download a setup GUI called firestarter which will help you setup your firewall.
As for icons, yeah, i think you can use them no problem. Just mount your windows partition and copy over the icons to /home or wherever you want, then configure your WM to use them.
Hope that helps, if you need more helop just ask

I don't think you'd be able to run ZoneAlarm on a linux machine even through wine, I believe it is impossible and it is like hammering nails with a screwdriver knowing that there is a hammer in a toolbox next to you. For a firewall, for starters I suggest firestarter, it has intuitive interface and it is easy to manage. http://firestarter.sourceforge.net/
As for icon sets, I think you may use them as long as they are images (jpg, png, etc), I've never tried it though.

Just to let you know, I work for Roadrunner right now doing cable modem support, and you wouldn't believe the number of times I have to get people to either disable ZoneAlarm or actually remove it before they get their own Internet connection back.

Don't get me wrong, it works ok when it works, but I would say half the time it doesn't, well for the most part it doesn't. I just like those who swear and won't disable it (Cause they swear its not the problem ), but after about 10 minutes of arguing with me and they finally agree to disable it and then they get connected with no problems. Oh well.

But Linux does have a much better firewall that is also free.

trickykid,

I've been using ZoneAlarm well over a year with my cable modem and never had trouble connecting. What does RR do that would interact w/ ZoneAlarm? Is there some sort of sign-on process?

(I've been using Linix for less than a week and I'm already in love w/ it! Can't wait to try firestarter!)

Well there is something wrong,it could be your PC hardware any other software is running at the background.
I my self install my own computer for about 4times and is working very well,I installed in my father PC it works very well/ ok to.
It could be your hardware it doesn`t getting along.

But Linux does have a much better firewall that is also free.
I know about that but what I looking for.Linux got many firewall I`m asking is there does the samething like the ZoneAlarm.

Is there better firewall then ZoneAlarm?
