RE: Secure host newbie

Hi.

------------
I'll have to update kernels, for sure, I have no choice right now over 
RH 7.3...
------------

Out of interest, why is there no choice in this? You can tell your
management (or provider) that it is insane to use 7.3 on such a box. And
what kind of provider is supplying services on 7.3? I'd really like to know!

The only time I can think of 7.{2,3} being a plus is when specific software
packages are being used, and so therefore when the box in question is a
workstation. On a server, there is no logical reason to go with it.

Thanks in advance for your reply...

Andrew
