Start with "Practical Unix Security" by Gene Spafford. The look on CERT
(what's the email address?). Then read up promiscuous IP, Berkeley Packet
Filter, sendmail, ...
BUT, NT is also full of holes. Most OS's are. Anything that (1) wasn't
designed from the ground up with security in mind, (2) isn't built with
excellent software engineering practices, and isn't maintained in the same
manner will be fairly easy to break.
