other way:
Jigish Gohil: Stop ssh brute force attack using SuSEfirewall
Edit /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2:
#do not open ssh ports here
FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP=""
FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT=""
#add this rule
FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT="0.0.0.0/0,tcp,22,,hitcount=3,blockseconds=60,recentname=ssh"
#Restart firewall:
rcSuSEfirewall2 restart
Now attacker will just have three attempts to break in.

In response to: 10 essential tricks for admins

Doesn't work anymore; can add boot params directly, in main grub-screen. added 1 -> starts in runlevel 1 as intended, BUT it then asks for the root-password !

Good security; but now I need to reset my forgotten root-passwd some other way...

put init=/bin/bash in the boot-options in grub.
(using /bin/sh doesn't work)
