Arrow Mandrake 9.2 Security Level 4 (Higher)

I installed Mandrake 9.2 with the security level of "higher". The little I knew about my newly aquired linux software was all gone. I could no longer ssh into my box among other things. Later to find out there are files I have to manually configure.

I also later found out I can change my security level using the "msec x" command substituting "x" for a number from 0-5.

My first question is due to the fact that I still can't ssh into my box unless I change the security level. I want to keep it at level 4 but still be able to ssh into it. Is there clear documentation somewhere on how to deal with the different security levels? I have found bare bone papers describing the levels but not telling me how to enable ssh. I have already configured shorewall to let ssh through for "all". I have also started the sshd. Anything else?

My second question is related to the msec command. Is loading a machine with security level 4 the same as loading a machine with security level 1 and later typing "msec 4" in the command line? This considering I use the default settings for level 4 on both.

Thanks in advance. I hope I was clear.
