Trying to create a global flowchart for first time VPS startups for programmers at my plant. Need quote for someone to just compile a list of steps to secure a linux distro. So far, here is what I got. If you can improve on it, please tell price.

yum upgrade
add new user
remove root access from ssh
installed apf firewall
installed brute force detection
install rkhunter
install mod_security
move tmp to different partition, noexec nosuid
disable non-root access to unsafe binaries (no user can run wget)

thx. you know one of my dream projects is to make a linux distro which uses the original zelda as the gui. How cool would it be that each screen is a directory, and like var is dungeon 1. Sorta of like payback to this community for being so stupid.
