    I don't use Xandros, so don't know whats available in Xandros repositories for download.

    Without doubt you need a firewall, look for Firestarter or Guarddog.

    Anti-virus is an option unless you're networked to Windows or send files off to people who use Windows. Forget Kclamav/clamav, its not very good. Look for F-Prot, BitDefender, AntiVir, Avast or AVG.

    Even though AV is an option in Linux its still affected by rootkits, get chkroot or rkhunter and you'll be fine

    I use PCLinuxOS and the only thing available in the repositories is F-Prot & Kclamav. I use F-Prot.

    F-Prot now has what many consider the #1 AV expert (ex NOD32 guru-AV God) so its on its way to the top. He's known as Inspector Clouseau http://www.av-experts.org/weblog/

    Any of the other AV's I mentioned are very good
