    A computer and a copy of Linux?

    Oh, and a complete in-depth understanding of every popular and unpopular
    filesystem on the planet.

    Fairly simple. Provide a web page that sells a collection
    of common-sense data security items, and then
    test and study it carefully. Make yourself available online
    to instruct end-users in how to apply this collection
    of products. I recommend to start:

    PowerQuest DriveImage 2002
    Outlook Express Freebie Backup
    Spybot and AdAware links
    Large USB hard drives >> 100 gig ( links )
    Large Standard hard drives >> 160 gig ( links )
    Symantec Raid appliance ( link )
    A FAQ page on F-secure, McAffee, and Nortan AV
    A FAQ page on why firewalls are nonsense
    A link page to file complaints with Fed Trade Com
    A FAQ page on how to deal with ebay, paypal, etc
    A FAQ page on how to sue an ISP who is pushing spam
    to force you to buy their filtering service.
    A link page to news services like ZDNET, PC World
    A FAQ page on how to avoid "expert" advice from
    CS majors !!!!! and high school students.
    A link page to submit criminal spam to valid organizations
    who will inspect it.
    An On-site PC tech page that will send out a guy who
    knows how to slave a drive and recover your work.

    There's lots of common-sense approaches to data
    security that will get you past the know-it-alls and
    CS majors .. that ACTUALLY work in minimal time
    .... and greatly reduce the stupid jargon that an end-user
    just doesn't want to hear anymore. Have your users
    order through your site and package the collection
    for them. And then, help them maintain it. That is
    worth a small surcharge added to the bundle. Make
    it clear that your service is valuable, and become an
    on-line Security Psychologist .. much like a cheerleader
    or aerobics instructor .. who will prompt them to stay
    aware of the issues and develop a healthy PC.
