Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Provided your system is "sane", as root, run (w/o outer quotes):
"lsof -p $(/sbin/fuser /dev/pts/*|cut -d ":" -f 2- | tr " " ",")" or "/sbin/fuser -vu /dev/pts/*" or "find /proc/[0-9]*/fd/ -ls | grep pts" to see what processes have pseudo tty's open.
am i being hacked?
Most likely not. Verify your systems integrity if you want to be sure.
Distribution: Gentoo 2004.2, Slackware 10, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server

All the logs files are in /var/log, check them all carefully and look for anything
out of the ordinary.
Be sure to follow UnSpawn's advice too.
If everything is safe, install aide.
It's an integrity checker and can detect changes in files, so it gets pretty hard
for anyone to crack your box and change stuff.
