One of the best articles on initially configuring an Ubuntu system is from Slicehost, it goes into

      Updating you firewall

Some general command line tools:

% lsb_release -a (What version of Ubuntu are you running?)
% cat /etc/lsb-release (What version of Ubuntu are you running? )

Some tools I find useful when doing upgrades:

Here is a great article upgrading from 7.10 to 8.04 (Gutsy to Hardy).

Windows Antivirus Protection

Avast! antivirus is free software that I recommend for home use computers. It is great and protects you for free on a windows machine, you can’t beat that!

A few people asked me how to schedule a boot scan before letting window start.

To schedule boot scan using Avast, follow the steps below:

  • Right click on the Avast system tray icon
  • Click on “Start Avast Anti Virus”
  • Avast anti virus window will pop up and run a memory scan
  • Once memory scan finish, you can right click on the Avast anti virus window and select “Schedule Boot Time Scan”
  • “Schedule Boot Time Scan” window will popup, select “Scan all local disk” and check on “Advanced Options” and you can go from there

…hope this helps

I’ll be updating this post from time to time.
