I think the Bastille project does what you want.  They have a hardening
script that takes you through the process step-by-step, asking you questions
and providing context.  It is very complete and effective.  It is partially
based on the wonderful SANS textbook: Linux Security Step-By-Step (of which
I am a contributor, so I am biased).

With the GLB and various other acts it has driven the need to develop a
checklist for systems to be "certified".  I have been tasked with
developing a checklist for Linux systems to certify they are secure.
I was wondering curious what other institutions have done along these
lines and if anyone might be willing to share what they have developed.
