Im using VMware in windows, everything works fine, but when I create documents or files, and save them to the backtrack desktop, or folders, when I log out and restart backtrack, the files are gone!! Is there a way to make them stay?
There are 2 things.either you can download the Vmware image of BT3/4 or simply,with the exist BT ISO.install it in vmware like you install on HDD.you can find links here regarding how to install BT on HDD.the procedure for both HDD & Vmware installation is same & the things which you are trying to save are not persistant cause that is Live ISO and until the machine is running.its saved in memory.also don't use titles such as please help or what I am doing wrong.before signing here you are abide to follow the rules.so comply with the rules policy HERE.
I've done a bunch of searches on the forum on how to install BT3 on HDD, and am hping you can just answer a few dumb questions for me...but my specific situation is:
I am running vista already...Should I partition through windows or through bt3, and is there a specific command/program to use?
Is the BT3 ISO image the same for the install and live?
Do I run the live cd to the KDE shell and run the install, or to I select another option in the boot menu??
Also, how does backtrack know what partion to use?
If all goes well, will it automatically give me the option on which operating system to boot, or do I have to do something special?
pureh@te has spent few hours of his precious time to write this one:
There are 156 posts, there are 16 full pages of discussion. I don't want to be rude but GO AND READ THEM. SEE YOU.
I would like to mention that BT distro is not for beginners.you should be familiar with linux environ. and one more word of caution.a little mistake of yours while using partitioning utilities will make your HDD data destroy.so think twice before doing anything.also you would like to read this imp. thread.
If you're a Linux noob, read this thread
Than followed this Video from 5.30 onwards
But dont forget to check partion table before following the above video & Ofcourse you need to burn bt3-final.iso on CD

i tried that but for unknown reasons when we create partitons in pre-partioned disk it will not save the changes in partition table i.e Linux swap it show error but after creating with ACRONIS it works good
