Newbi needs Linux help...

Hello everyone... Im completely new to Linux, but I have had an interest in it since high school freshman year of 2007. I just recently downloaded the 10.10 Meerkat Maverick desktop edition distro. I love the setup of the desktop. Im still currently learning new things every time I use Ubuntu. My question or questions are : Where can i get better help for Compiz? Im tryin to fully customize the desktop but i keep running into issues. I got the cube thing down a little, but Im trying to get compiz fusion with all the extra options but thats where im stuck. What advice can u more seasoned ubuntu users can give me about setting up security for my system. I need u guys to point me in the right direction where I can learn the basics and eventually the more advanced stuff. I will be goin to college for Network Security through UAT. Later on once I start my core clases I will be learning about Linux. So any advice that could get me ahead of the game would be nice. SEE YA SOON...
