what do YOU think of, when you hear HACK ??

Not someone wanting to play games.... at least I dont...

i WAS a hack... back in the eairl 80's,
it was someone who kept his/her nose in a terminal, nearly all waking hours of the day, so as to learn unix...
today, the definition, or at least the usage, of that
term, is someone wanting to break in, and/or cause damage....
Hardly someone I want to assist....

The majority of the people don't know how to classify a cracker or hacker. Therefore it is not illogical to address it this way. I agree a counter question should have been asked immediately to verify her/his intentions to show we're openminded and (as) unbiassed (as possible).

well there are many ways of war games and related things that arent illegal
...of course she/he made her/his intentions pretty clear by now.

Norton is an ANTIVIRUS, it can't protect you against hackers.

If you cant figure it out yourself (google maybe), then I doubt you'll be able to hack into it.

if you mean by *hacking* to tweak and modify for your purpose, i'd start here or at your local bookstore, you'd be surprised how many linux, unix, programming, networking books there are available and i'm sure there are also many documents out there about how to find vulnerabilities, although you'r on your own for that...
this is the reason many colleges have a hard time deciding weather or not to teach network security courses, because to teach someone how to secure a network you basically have to teach them how to break into one...
