Also take a look at the Security references thread near the top of the forum for a number of general hardening guides. Since you're using Mandrake, you might want to take advantage of its built-in msec utility. Make sure to read up on each of the security levels to make sure that you set it at the proper level for your needs (paranoid really means paranoid in msec).
