i've seen F-prot and kaspersky mentioned. i believe F-prot is free, and kaspersky is buy-ware. i don't really worry about viruses too much on linux -- one of the perks of running this OS.

F-prot isn't free, it's free of charge.
Huge difference.
And yes, RMS is my god

btw, this has been discussed before, but antivirus software on non-windoze servers
(like a mailserver) are needed to protect windoze-clients.
