    Default BT3 startx/vi problem on Macbook pro - no screens

    Hi, Im trying to boot my machine from the backtrack 3 CD and when i use startx I get the no screens found error which I can find if required by anyone.

    I think the solution to this is to use vi to edit the xorg.conf file - 1440 * 900 needs to go in this file as thats the macs top res.

    Did a bit of research on vi but still find it hard to use.


    Heres my questions:

    - Can I change the ISO file before I burn it so it supports the right resolution, if so then hints on how please.
    - Is vi the better route? and if so what kind of entry would I need in the xorg.conf file.

    Cheers

    I dunno about your problem with your mac and your resolutions but you could always try nano instead of vi
