Actually, I've written instructions for the federal Agency I support on how to
secure a Red Hat Linux box (6.2, 7.1, and I'm about to do 7.2) to our
standards.  It's what all Agency sysadmins nationwide have to follow.  I've
also done it for Solaris 8. My docs stood up to independent and in-house geek
review, so I think I've done OK.  Those docs are internal/confidential, but I
could easily write a "Making a Linux box secure" howto that was generic enough
and built on the knowledge and lab testing I've done at work.

Err...  Kivio or Dia, methinks.  Let's keep this Linux, not Microsoft.

Lots of places like that.

Forget NSI.  Try domaingeeks instead :)
