Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.
Is somebody able to me please, step by step explain like I under backtrack 4 beta, a DSL modem can set up thus I can online go?
Why not just use the network manager.
Open a terminal:
This will light the green applet in the dock and simplify this entire process instead of using some crazy script.
I say do it all from the command line, as described on the wiki. If you can't manage to perform a basic task like configuring your network from the command line, you probably shouldn't be using BackTrack
Or even better, write your own network interface driver, IP stack, DHCP client and DNS resolver and use those to connect to the Internet. That's the way a real hacker would do it - none of this namby pamby use of pre written software!
Just my $.02.. Maybe another info line at bootup would help?
