    Default How to do a real HD install ?

    Hi ,

    i've been asking myself how to do a full/real hd install of backtrack 3.
    Well, if i see things correct, copying /boot and /bt3 folder on usb/hdd or whatever can be considered as a "live" install. Those systems will perform same way as a live cd.
    Former included installer had an option called real install. Does anyone know how to proceed such a real install without help of installer ?

    regards,
    thetom

    Ok i've found a description that may work for bt3.
    In book penetration testers open source toolkit page 423 is such a descrition.
    I found similar one when struggeling through this forum / google. But can't find link again.
    It might be link on wiki to messin with bt3. This pdf includes nice tutorial. That hd install tut having cp --preserve -R /.........
    is one which should work as full install.

    Please just watch the video located here, by muts:
    offensive-security [dot] com/movies/dualboot/dualboot [dot] html"
    It is very very detailed. Although it is bt2, the same procedures can be followed.
    The result of this install is around 2.7gb.

    thx to all for your efforts. I've got installation done.
    Now i'm looking to get a flexible network config running. So i can switch ip, gateway and resolv settings on-the-fly . So if anyone has a hint, i'd be glad to hear.

    greets

    So i've written a small script for changing ipconfigs at once.
    I'll share it for those interesseted :

    #if any param is given use internet settings
    if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
    route add default gateway 192.168.1.1
    echo -ne "nameserver 192.168.1.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
    else #no param so use intranet settings
    ifconfig eth0 10.10.10.11 netmask 255.255.0.0
    route add -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.10.10.1
    echo -ne "" > /etc/resolv.conf
    fi
