Visions of 8-year-olds-dancing-in-my-head.
That is what it is supposed to look like my friend. That little root@bt deal there is called a prompt. Now if you want a shiny clean smelling desktop to surf the web with type "startx" without the quotes at the aforementioned prompt.
Then surf over to this thread to get started on the real cool stuff. http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad-thread.html
Have a nice day.
Wait I almost forgot. Type this first at the prompt
Then type startx
Because I am quite sure you won't be able to surf the net without it. Then you'll make another post on that.
If you do still have trouble with either of the two after reading the link and everything in it, then by all means return and make a post here in this thread so we can help you.
Be aware that we will require your help and lots of details in order to help you.
