I got Backtrack 3 running perfectly on my EEE PC thanks to the great instructions at: kin.calvin.free.fr/blog/?p=16 (can't post full links but you can see it there).
While BT3 is working and booting just fine, I can't get back into my Windows partition. I added the following to lilo.conf like the instructions said:
(Only difference: made it sda1 instead of hda1 because that's what it's called.
#Windows Boot possibility :
other = /dev/sda1
label = Windows
table = /dev/sda
This doesn't work. No option to boot XP.
I figure that instead of messing around with Lilo to make it work, I'd much rather install GRUB. I'm more familiar with it and it's much prettier :P
So, how can I install GRUB? I tried following the instructions here: forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=14806
My wifi isn't working because it was disabled, and I can only re-enable it through XP (FN+wireless doesn't work), so I simply downloaded grub to my thumb drive and followed these instructions:
(Only difference: /dev/sda2 instead of /dev/sda5
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/backtrack/root/ /dev/sda2
However, I only got as far as the "grub-install" step, because when I entered it, I got the error:
This is where I'm stuck. Please help
mkdir: cannot create directory '/mnt/backtrack/root//boot': No such file or directory
P.S. There is a system:/media/backtrack partition, but when I try to do anything to it I get a popup saying: "A secutiy policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient *blah blah blah*" Could this be part of the problem?
