Can someone spare a couple minutes to help this noob?
There are so many tutorials around this forum. Just look for them it describes how a hard disk is partitioned. In your case you just have to do some transfer work to do for your setup.

I read some tutorials how install backtrack3 on hard drive,and when i just start its said i should unmount windows particon so i can install backtrack.
I write mount in konsole and i got this:
aufs on / type aufs (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
They are alredy unmounted!
Should i just continue installation or something is wrong?
that's fine, go on
maybe it's easier for you to use qtparted (or maybe gparted) for formatting (just if you dont like fdisk)
edit: and don't forget to backup before!
I done this part:
Code:Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda7p2 * 1 9 72261 83 Linux /dev/hda7p3 10 197 1510110 82 Linux swap /dev/hda7p4 198 10863 85674645 83 Linux
After this i reboot and look what hapen:
What could be the problem?Code:bt ~ # mke2fs /dev/hda7p2 mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006) Could not stat /dev/hda7p2 --- No such file or directory The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly? bt ~ #
Recheck that the devices actually (still) exists by issuing "fdisk -l" (that's an L).
You can try mkfs.ext3 or mkfs.ext2 if mke2fs doesn't work. It shouldn't have any
differences at all, however try it out. But make sure the partitions are still correct
and that they exist.

Oh, wait. Now I see what you're talking about. Yea, those partition numbers aren't right, for one, it's using bsd disk labels, which is why I didn't pick up on it at first.
You didn't happen to follow a :how to dual boot a Mac" how-to did you?
Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
