Is it just SLAX with hundreds of tools added on? Or is there more to it?
Because I was considering making my own "custom BackTrack" with a different OS if only the drivers/tools are the case so I don't need the extra hardware support and can maintain my own system (especially with the different OS choice).
Or is there more than just the hardware support/tools? Are there specialized scripts for everything that were written or something? Will just adding the tools onto another OS not do the same job as BackTrack would do? I just want to mimic BT but in a way I'm more comfortable with so I don't have all the extra unnecessary stuff for my system in particular. Also to add tools such as Nessus for my own private use on my own LiveCD, etc.
Not to mention the entire kernel is specially built and has patches which are custom and may not be available.
What do most of the special scripts do? Can't I just copy those sources over if I need them? Can't I also copy Fast-Track over? Since I'm not going to distribute my copy or anything.
Well if you are confident that you can do it, go ahead and try it out

I appreciate the work done and provided to me free of charge at all.
If there is anything you are missing you could contribute to the community and add the feature instead of saying that you can do everything better.

What's with the accusations? I never said I wanted to make BackTrack better. I want to make it for me, and myself only. I could probably shave off the boot time as well if I remove all the excess drivers and support I don't need for my hardware, but obviously you can't do that on BT because it's made for everybody, not just one person. Also you can't put Nessus on the LiveCD because they won't let you, and apt-get on a LiveCD won't work too well. I also want to change the Desktop Environment to something that I prefer, instead of KDE/Fluxbox because I'm more comfortable with something else. Why do you guys look down on personal customizations? Also, it's unnecessary to claim people of saying something they never did.
This implies using fedora or somethingBecause I was considering making my own "custom BackTrack" with a different OS
I'm afraid changing the OS goes way beyond "personal customizations"Why do you guys look down on personal customizations
Theres nothing wrong with making some modifications and removing/adding stuff you need or dont need however thats not what you said in your original post.
I was thinking of using Gentoo instead
I don't see what the contradiction is
