    Default burn bt2 with extra content?

    i tried burning bt2 with additional folders, references for installing, videos etc on a dvd with poweriso but it doesnt boot.

    is there a way to include extra things on the cd, and it still be a bootable image?

    You can add modules to backtrack there are several howto's on the wiki to make modules from source or directory structures.

    thanks for your reply, but im a bit confused

    I dont understand, i only want to include folders and videos on the dvd so if i run the dvd, apart from booting BT2 it allows me to browse these folders in the dvd root.

    sorry for maybe misunderstanding but is this what i need, adding modules?

    if it's only dats folders add them to the iso structure and rebuild it

    you need to built module only if you want those files appears in the main filesystem .

    if you just add the folders you will need to open your dvd in konqueror browser.

    Thanks for the reply shaman, i didnt think i needed those steps. Yes its just adding data, nothing needs loading directly, i just want to include references, how to install my adapter, konsole commands in the dvd. I did this before but the BT was an unbootable dvd. I should try again, but maybe save as ISO then burn (i previously did on the fly burn which may be the reason). The dvd contents looked like:

    /boot
    /BT
    /how to install nic.txt
    /recover your wep key.txt
    /recover your wpa.txt
    /konsole commands.txt
    /madwifi-ng info.txt
    /Aircrack-ng/
    /Madwifi-ng/
    /Wordlists/

    I will try again later, thanks for the response

    Did you try d/l'ing the BT3b USB/DVD content (non iso) and adding your files/folders *before* running the included makeiso script?

    EDIT: Just realised you're wanting to do this with BT2. But anyway, I'd go the BT3b route

    Follow this guide

    It was written by one of the guys who writes BT so it works 100% and is the best way to do it.
    It is the only method I use to remaster the live CD, or as with what often happens, the cd ends up being a DVD.
    JUST REMEMBER TO BURN IT AT THE SLOWEST SPEED YOU CAN 1-2X, 4X at an absolute MAX.
