I know a lot about Mac OS X. Which version are you running? Jaguar, Panther, or Tiger? I dont really know of a good website to show you how to use it. I would just play around with it (you can't really mess anything up unless you are in System Preferences). As far as a firewall you just need the one that is built in turned on. Located in System Preferences -> networking or security i can't remember. There are no viruses to worry about but you can download a free virus scanner from Securemac.com just in case.

They probably limited your account, so you can't do anything system related.

I bet doing this would be against the school rules.

If I rob a bank for financial reasons does it make it okay?
They want ur accounts to be limited. That's why they limited them.
U getting around that would be most likely against the school rules. If u really need it for educational purposes ask the one who takes care of that stuff in your school.
