newb looking for help

Ok, so Im new to linux and i need some help.

I just got a linux box at work a few days ago running lindows/lindspire (I think 4.5), and Im not supposed to change the distro. The network we plug into for internet and email access required antivirus for ALL computers. I know a bit about computers, but have had very limited encounters with linux/unix environments.

So i have a couple questions.

1. How do i ifind out which kernel im using?
2. How do I add modules to my kernel, namely dazuko ( so i can properly install antivir)?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

1. To find out your kernel version, you can type 'uname -r' at the command line.

2. To insert modules into the running kernel, you can type 'modprobe [module name]' or possibly 'insmod [module name]'

Hope that helps.
