    Default Installing Modules on BT2 Live CD

    I am having trouble installing modules within the bt2final.iso. I am using the BackTrack 2 Live CD, so I am trying to make the necessary amendments in Windows (XP). There is but one module I'm trying to install, it is "nvidia.lzm" as offered for download on the BackTrack wiki.

    First, I open up bt2final.iso in PowerISO, an iso management utility. Then, I extract the 2 folders "boot" and "BT" onto my desktop. Next, I copy and paste "nvidia.lzm" into the "modules" directory under "BT". After that, I select both folders and tell PowerISO to turn them into an iso. After the iso is rebuilt, I simply burn it to a disk at the lowest possible speed and then attempt to boot from it, but it never will boot. It will think for a couple seconds, and then proceed to boot to windows.

    Using md5sum I have checked the iso and the footprints indeed match, so my original download is apparently not corrupted. Am I going about installing the module incorrectly? I read the entire page on the wiki under the "How To" section that detailed a "simple way to install modules", but it appeared that it was being done in linux. Due to my unfamiliarity with linux, I would very much like to do this in Windows, if at all possible. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you make the ISO you created bootable? I havent used PowerISO before but im sure its in the options somewhere.

    I think if you use that method with BT2 you will get a checksum error and the disc will refuse to boot, well that is what I have seen people report.
    But then I have never tried it that way on BT2

    Yes EXACTLY. That is what happens no matter what I do... it gives me some error that has something to do with a library file (didn't write it down) and it scrolls constantly down the screen and will not boot. I have tried everything suggested here to no avail.

    How exactly can I add the nvidia.lzm module to my bt2final.iso and burn it so that it will actually boot?

    Edit: If it is easier to simply produce a bootable usb stick then fine, I'm trying to do that at the moment. However, I need to note that after following balding's parrots' tutorial (not saying there is anything wrong with it), I cannot get it to work properly. I noticed that tut was written last year, is there a better or easier way to create a backtrack 2 usb stick than having to do it yourself with qtparted? What about the installer that comes on the live cd? I think I read that it was broken somewhere but not sure...
