    I am curious if /scripts/securetmp is the best to use for securing tmp or if a manual method is more secure such as http://www.webhostgear.com/34.html etc. Any thoughts?

    Go on, have a guess
    They're as secure as each other.

    They're all doing the same thing. None are better or worse.

    Has anyone tried the securetmp yet using logical volumes in RHEL4/centos4 ?

    I have thought about trying it but as this is a production server I really don't want to be the one to find out the hard way it doesn't work properly

    I have several times, it works no problem. The /tmp partition creation is independent of the FS that you use on your disk as it uses the loop device and tmpfs to mount the file as a file system.

    any idea how to change the tmp size?
    I tried changing the value of my $tmpdsksize in the script but it still defaults to 262MB

    replace "256000" "512000" -- /scripts/securetmp

    Add it before your securetmp entry in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local as well
