    First Mistake: Double Posting
    Second Mistake: Bad title of thread
    Third Mistake: Chances are, you shouldn't be using Backtrack.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    How is this a how-to??
    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

    hi zisha,

    I understand where you are coming from, but you will quickly learn (as I did not too long ago) that you need to find things out yourself and really posting questions like you have done will only cause you to be ignored, flamed and prolly moved to the idiots corner. You need to learn some basics on linux, search for specific things, like how to install xyz in linux, follow some tutorials on here for example installing BT onto your hard drive, look on youtube and aol video for tutorials. Once you have done a few more basic things you will find you know some commands, like su and sudo, svn etc etc. Best of luck.

    I found this very funny

    Start--> System--> Synaptic.

    But no, you shouldn't be using this.
    I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!

    Easy, it's a "how-to" not understand what you're doing, done mostly by example.

    As said before, you should start learning Linux before starting to play around with BT.

    It is not meant as a beginner distribution. Go and get Ubuntu, OpenSuSe or Fedora. Take it for a ride for a couple of weeks until you feel comfortable. Then come back and ask for where to proceed

    Do not double post and use descriptive and sensible thread tiles.
