 on older versions this may be a little problem 2.6.12 , but we are at 2.6.32-22 . i am not worried about it . they would have to go through my server ,my modem., my router, my firewall . what operating system i am using today ,my password , and to top this which one on three pc i might have online today .

From a computer science standpoint of view these approarches are not quite scientific. Adding some software wont solve your problem. I strongly recommend you to read books... lots of books. Furthermore I doubt your home installation is likely to be a DoS-Target. Protection against malware, a good kernel, libs and userspace binaries as well as extensice knowledge about the underlying OS should be much more of concern to you. Finally your question is INVALID since you adressed DoS in general but not in an Ubuntu related context.
