comment Installing Linux on MacBook Air
You can dabble in hacking/programming with OS X. It’s certified Unix under the hood. For the Linux part, I would clean up the OS X disk to assure that I had enough disk space for OS X, virtualization software, and a virtual machine. OS X would need about 5-10% free for itself, and then add about 10-20 GB for the VM and virtualization software. Install the Linux distibution you want with virtualization software: VirtualBox, VMware workstation, or VMware Fusion. The down vote was probably for asking so many questions at once. Break them down into specific questions after trying to learn it.

comment Security risks of opening FTP
FTP uses clear text passwords. I don't see enough background to say definitively, but using FTP seems foolish. I would either teach them to use SFTP or engineer an access method that lets you sleep at night. If the security is your job / responsibility, be responsible while also achieving client requirements.

comment Auditing configuration
There are many kernel subsystems that generate security log data which are, at the moment, ignored by auditd. (It would be nice if these subsystems were extended.)
