Ubuntu and hacking?

Hey all,
I'm a complete noob to Linux, and I was hoping somebody could help me out in learning how to use it and how to best use it as a hacking environment; in a sense to make it more hacker-friendly (...as in, easy to hack from, not easy to be hacked).
Sites where this kind of info is posted are fine, but as you can probably tell I am a complete noob with Linux....
As you can probably tell from the subject line, I'm using Ubuntu/Gnome.
In addition, does anyone know where I can find a site with hacking tools, etc. that run on linux?
Thanks,
-HA

Best place to start would be with the bootable disk for Back Track this has all the hack tools you would need. Good piece of software. You should check it out.

Just about any linux OS would be good for "hacking"
but he does have a great point. Backtrack does come with a bundle of useful software
aready installed.
