    Hi RedPenguin,

    nice first post.

    bt ~ # lilo -v
    Is there no need to edit the lilo.conf for VM?
    Don't know didn't make an VM install yet.

    If not, Keep it on , and perhaps make it sticky

    * post your question to a forum where it's off topic
    * post a very elementary question to a forum where advanced technical questions are expected, or vice-versa
    * cross-post to too many different newsgroups
    * post a personal e-mail to somebody who is neither an acquaintance of yours nor personally responsible for solving your problem

    There's an easier way, with only 2 steps.

    1. Download the B|T3 vmware image from the Back|Track site.
    2. Start the image in vmware.
    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

    Unless they are USB connectable you will not be able to give the guest OS full control over these devices.
