This Linux Journal article looks at the linux sniffing tools. It looks at the most common sniffing tool, tcpdump, but also has info on a few tools I wasn't familiar with like p0f, which attempts to do passive OS fingerprinting to see what versions of software are on your net and dsniff, which follows network traffic to look inside traffic like mail, web, etc. if you want to create your own wall of sheep.
And while I'm looking at security and unintended shared content, Schneier's blog has a post about unsecured webcams.
