Did you use Linux before?
i have downloaded wepbuster.tgz so i can see what its like.
im running backtrack 3 final from a 8gig sd card without the persistant changes as im not too comfortable with trying the coding.
what i would like to know is how would i go about using wepbuster with my version of backtrack 3? i understand i will have to mount/install it everytime i start my eeepc but im willing to do that
good luck with mounting and installing a tar.gz package every time you boot your iso...
oh almost forgot..
no. this is my first forray into anythin other than windows but i am seriously considering making the switch to a linux os. i have a eee-pc 701 sd which is currently running xp. i quite like the idea of everythin for linux being open source and the fact that its not as resource hungry as windows. im just not sure how i would replace xp with it.
Dude just make a changes folder and then copy it to another offsite locate.
Then if you make a mistake just go to the partition with the changes partition and delete the folder. Then re-copy the offsite one back in place and you have your fresh install all over again.
It really is quite simple, and if you make a mistake the problem is easily solved for the next attempt.
I would start with one of the more beginner versions like Ubuntu. Also learn the Bash commands. The majority of programs in BT are command line.

Theres a lot that you can learn by just starting off with something like ubuntu, with windows a lot of people are spoiled in using a GUI all the time, once you start poking around with unix, its a whole new world. Your keyboard and the command line are your only friends :-)
im thinkin of goin with eeebuntu. anyone had any experience with this os?
Not yet but that might be a good idea for the beginning.
Noone is saying that you shouldn't/can't come back. But it is easier to learn the basics on a different Linux distro without all the tools around to distract one.
