I need to take a crash course in network security. There is a class on campus for "Intro to Network Security" but I won't be able to take it until next Spring.

i find that i tend to learn programming and things of the sort better just by reading books.

maybe you should try picking up a book and just reading it. then again, if you want credits, thats a different story

I've been thumbing through some books here and there when I get a chance to head down to BAM, but most of the network security books are either too simple ("How to use Anti-virus software!") or over the security features of Windows Server 2k3. And then there are the books that have the word "Hacker" in the title which are just a marketing ploy. They don't teach you anything but are rather more fictional than anything.

Since I have to take so many hours of credits, you can bet I'll be taking some classes like network security 101.

heh, i know what you mean.

that is a good point. most security books i see are along the lines of what you said and probably wouldnt offer very much good material.

I actually stopped by a local BAM and looked at their "Networking" section. Not much has changed. The only real interesting books are a little over my head (even in the first chapter!) so I put them back down lol.

Probably buggy APIC, check for bios updates and try booting with noapic.

I did on both. I'm hoping it's not just a buggy generic mobo, older hp nf2 with an athlon XP2600.

It loaded dsl just fine a couple times though, so dsl isn't loading or initializing something that deb is. My iso checks good, I may just re-download it and try it again.

Nope, forgot this one. I've used it enough before, you would think I'd remember it. I'll post in the a.m. how it goes.

Been meaning to ask too, on choosing which daemons to get rid of, shouldn't I use 'netstat --all --programs' ? Or just use both?

Thanks man.
