Mandrake 9.0 security

How do I go about enabling certain ports in Mandrake 9.0? I have tried the /etc/hosts.allow&deny files but they don't seem to work. Any pointers?

Well actually you can close all of the nonsense you don't need in your /etc/inetd.conf file. And when you reboot the commented processes will be shutdown and the ports will be closed. And then you can edit /etc/hosts.allow&deny like you said. And when you run a firewall it will read the files and you're done! Good luck!

When I try to edit the file, it says that it doesn't exist. Do I have to create it first?
