Hello,  I am still having a problem with the machine showing Moscow
time on FC3.  I have done all I know to do, and changing the time
didn't help. Now I want to know if it is being compromised.

Starting nmap 3.70 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-11-25 20:06 EST
Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (
(The 65529 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
22/tcp    open  ssh
25/tcp    open  smtp
111/tcp   open  rpcbind
631/tcp   open  ipp                  ?
5335/tcp  open  unknown    <-----?
32769/tcp open  unknown    <------?  

I think I've been had. What do you think ?  How do I turn off a port
at the command line?

Also I am installing chkrootkit.  Here is what I've got so far.  

[root at 202 chkrootkit-0.44]# mkdir /var/adm
[root at 202 chkrootkit-0.44]# echo " " >/var/adm/wtmp
[root at 202 chkrootkit-0.44]# echo " " >/var/adm/lastlog
[root at 202 chkrootkit-0.44]# http://www.start-linux.com/chkrootkit
bash: http://www.start-linux.com/chkrootkit: No such file or directory
[root at 202 chkrootkit-0.44]#    

I haven't run checkroot yet and apparrently there is some specific
verbiage for FC (3 in this case).  Can anyone tell me what to do to
get chkroot on there and then how to run it?
