    Heh, I pulled Vista off all my wife's business computers because their accounting software wasn't Vista compatible.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    maybe because there is nothing on vista requiring 20 steps to install?

    Hey, when nothing is compatible, you don't have to install it.

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to install backtrack on my eeePc, in my SDHC on the card reader, but I have a problem.
    When I do this command

    umount /dev/sda1
    mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1

    after this, all ok, but when I execute

    mount /dev/sda1

    the system return me this error:

    "mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"

    Can you help me ?
    Thanks

    because you have to provide a mount point. If you are installing to sdhc card you posted in the wrong thread anyway.

    Try this method here

    I'm not even sure exactly what your doing but in order to make that work you would have to...
    mkdir /mnt/sda1
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

    Ok I have done all, but when I reboot the system give me this message

    VFS: Cannot open root device "801" or unknown-block(8,1)
    Please append a correct "root=" boot option
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)

    That is because your trying to do a "real" install to sd card which requires some extra parameters in the lilo file. I have never had a reason to do it because a live install on shhc with changes is a much smarter way to go. You will need to search around because this topic has been discussed a few times in the past few months.
