I bought the Norton 360 to install in my new computer which came with Ubuntu already installed. How can I install the Norton 360. Or what other network security system is compatible with the Ubuntu?

You don't install Norton into Ubuntu. Norton is only a Windows app so is NOT suitable for Linux. You don't really need AV in Linux as the environment is simply too varied and hostile for viruses to thrive, then number of actual Linux viruses you can count on both hands and none are wild. You can install AV if you intend to run a fileserver of some sort as it will stop viruses spreading if you have Windows clients and there are a list here. I recommend you use ClamAV.

There is already a firewall built into the OS in the shape of iptables but the default is to allow all traffic. You can configure easily:
