EDIT: I have downloaded the newest aircrack suite. How do you install programs or overwrite the old suite in backtrack? Assuming I am running the BT2 Live CD off of my 2 gig flash stick.
How do I do a PTW crack, b/c the tutorial said if you had the BackTrack 2 Live CD it wouldn't work, because it came after BT2. Well, I'd like to keep using BT2 and not BT3 beta or whatever, so what exactly do I need to be able to use PTW with BT2?
Do I need to search google for "How to install programs in Linux" or "How to install programs in BackTrack 2" or "How to install programs in slackware" etc. etc. b/c I'm not sure if the process is the same of different for these.
Any of those COULD work.... Also a lot of the time programs you download will have a README or INSTALL file. Read those and they will tell you how to install. A general way to install things is: ./configure , than make, than make install , though it may not work for everything.
yes installing a program would qualify as remembering a change. Any settings you change will also be remembered. I beleive this is the tutorial you were refering to. hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=7844&highlight=saving+changes+to+ backtrack+2
The second one is a little shorter and to the point but a good tutorial as well.
I don't even know how navigate the file structure in the Konsole. For example, in Windows, if I wanted to see the directory I was in, I would type "dir" or "dir /p". This I believe functions similarly in Linux. Also, I can us "cd" to change directories. However, When I type "dir", I do not see the "BT" and "Boot" folders. It's like I'm not reading the root of the memory card and this is what is confusing to me.
Anyways, I'm sure it will come with time and experience.
