2) For LILO - check out /etc/lilo.conf. There should be an option there. Make sure to run "lilo" as root after you have edited that file.
3) Are you aware that Redhat 9 is considered legacy? It was released in 2003, and support was discontinued in 2004. I strongly recommend that you upgrade to a more recent, supported distro. RH9 no longer receives security updates.
The answer to my firewall question was simple really. I ran "lokkit" from the command line and it brought up the text based firewall configuration and I simply chose 'ssh" from there.
I am aware Redhat 9 is legacy but wasn't aware there were no updates offered for it so I switched back to Fedora 6 (lucky I didn't delete that). I like Fedora 6 better than Rehat 9 anyway.
Thanks for all your help.
