The distro is PCLinuxOS-2007. I'll connect with a serial ext US Robotics modem. So no router.
To be safe do I need an AV & a Firewall? And if so freeware suggestions please.
I'm a risky surfer. Warez sites, etc. (For research only.)
My VERY limited experience has shown me changes/settings/preferences made in user acct. are gone or don't take when rebooted.
So I'll probably logon as root all the time.
Just like I like I'm always ADMIN in XP.
