I think

that ALL of the ports were open by default in my Distro (Mandrake 10.1). In addition to the above references, it is probably a good idea to have a machine that is external to your linux box in question actually CHECKING these ports for various levels of availability just to make sure (if you have the equipment to do this, that is)

If you are fortunate enough to have the equipment and the know how to get started with this, you might check

for some interesting developments along these lines (check the Audit Tools Project link)
