possible intrusion? netstat

tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 1.instal:x11-ssh-offset *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:* LISTEN

udp 0 0 *:32768 *:*
udp 0 0 *:*

Hello people. The above lines are the lines from my netstat -a output I DON''T understand - what on earth is this Why is it listening on so many ports? I'm on FC1, kernel 2.4.22-1.2174.nptl

Hoping it's not the worst as I suffered a system crash a few days back.

Look in your sevices file to see what is listening on these ports. Comment them out and see if there are any adverse affects (if this is a possibility, don't want to bring down something on a production box).
