I hate to sound like a noob but where is the existing HDU boot menu?
I am using Ubuntu, the only time I use Windows now is for work, and hopefully this machine will be my Fedora. But I am taking the advice from Secure-It, Purehate, Tron and learn Linux first. Trust me i am glad told this because if I didn't have Ubuntu, i would not know where to go in a Slackware machine. I also downloaded the book for Slackware, pretty informative. Thank you all for the help and apperciate the advice, because i am taking it. I am trying to make my xp/bt machine my everyday machine. so i am learning the basic's. As for TCP/IP, i know that pretty well, but the Linux is what i need to use and learn. I was thinking of Python for my language, since it real big in the Ubuntu community. I haven't read to much on it yet. I use BT for practice on my home network, trying to crack WPA and crap like that. Simple stuff to give me some experience in the field. If you call that experience.My main stay for experience come from real life. I know alot about the physical and social engineering part to security, you call it grit experience. But for right know I am trying to master the technological side of it now, which i know will take lots of brain power and drive. Been here since
My personal preference is for VMware products but there are others such as VirtualBox (F.O.C. for personal use), VirtualPC (free afaik) and others, but do be aware that VPC doesn't always work properly with Linux in general and BT3 in particular.
