Linux advice for a newbie.

ok. after waiting for months I finally got off my rear end and installed Linux.

I got Redhat 7.3 and installed it on an extra hard drive I was not using much.

so any sites you would recommend, programs that are must haves.

what do you use as a firewall program.

I am going to play around online to see if i can find stuff myself.

however any tips are always nice to get
