    Default BackTrack 3 Installed to CompactFlash 6GB Microdrive.

    Simple, Can backtrack be installed to a 6GB CF Microdrive and booted.

    Yes my system can boot from the card.

    If yes, what would be the easiest way about doing the install.

    I'am in no way a Computer newbie, but I haven't messed with Linux too much so keep it kinda NewbProof in the Linux terms. =P

    I am running a live version of Backtrack off a 16 GB CF card now, I am not sure you would want to do a regular install on a CF card as that may kill the card.

    I've got it installed as a live cd but with a swap partition on one. There's actually a microdrive in mine though, so I don't have to worry about trashing a cf card with the swap partition.
    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

    Yup I would rather run the live version anyway. I like having the same OS with the same programs and settings, on any computer anywhere
