Post What is the most secure distro?

As the Subject states: What is the most secure Linux distro.

Also I would like to know about lindows how do you install it I tried to install it by restarting the pc and the computer did not notice the CD. Note: I did have the CD setup for load up first I may be new to Linux but I am not new to the Pc.

I also want to know how good it is compared to redhat and mandrake.

Thank you all

redhat has a nickname..........roothat-----LOL
but any distro is only as secure as it's admin/user makes it!!!
you are the admin of YOUR box and it's up to you to "lock" it down, so to speak.

You should be able to launch it from a Win98 boot disk with CDRom support. Imagine that!
