i need help on setting up a computer on my network with low security so i can learn the ways in and then trace and fix the holes and find new ones and so on but want to start out pretty easy but don't really know where to start and i am willing to do a lot of reading and really learn on the subject. i really want to learn how to keep my system as secure as possible and be able to know when someone gets in or whatever you know.

You are going to hack your own system to learn the best security huh? Probably the easiest way is to hook up your wireless router and leave it wide open. Then maybe add a password and Broadcast your SSID then disable your SSID ...
Then you can go and add the various levels of protection one at a time and go through each liek WEP, RADIUS, WPA ... etc.
A good tool to find out what ports you have open on your network is NESSUS http://www.nessus.org/nessus/
Make sure and not run it on your network behind your firewall ...
OK ... I am done ranting!
