    Here is what you have:
    #mount /dev/hda3/ /mnt/backtrack/
    mount special device /dev/hda3/ does not exist
    (a path prefix is not a directory)
    The answers are in red.
    Follow the tutorial carefully.

    I realy appreciate your help, and thank you for your time.
    But as you can see i tryed command :
    mount dev/hda3 /mnt/backtrack/ (Without "/" after hda3) and it didnt worked, it says "No such file or directory"...
    So i wonder what did i do wrong?


    Look @ this screen. If this is wrong syntax than i am just stupid by nature, and i canot help myself.
    There is no cure for me.
    If syntax is correct, than nobody can help me bcuz i am on dead end but i think this forum have few peoples who knows how to solve this problem and i beg you help me if you know what is going on here.

    I am not sure what the problem is now.
    I would suggest you start all over from the beginning.
    Make sure you follow the commands closely. Wire them down or print them off if you need too.
    Also after you write the partition info with fdisk if it says to reboot make sure you do. Sometimes it will tell you to and sometimes it won't.

    to be bluntly honest,

    it should be pretty obvious to you that those whom you "think this forum have few peoples who knows how to solve this problem and i beg you help me if you know what is going on here" have some pretty understandable reservations about spoonfeeding you.

    apologizing for being new to b|t is all well and good, but it's also very understandable why such people would have some serious reservations as to your intentions; or at least your lack of ambition to learn things on your own, prior to asking. perhaps you should set your goals lower and learn linux basics before attempting to learn pentesting via complex sec/analysis tools on an operating system which you don't yet have a working grasp of? archangel.amael's advice is insightful; if perhaps maybe a bit too assuming you would actually take the time to figure out what he was saying to you before asking on here yet again. ;/

    honestly, i'm surprised this thread hasn't already been moved to newbies area. it's totally unrelated to b|t4b. the only real problem is that you don't know what you are doing.

    Ok once again you are not listening.
    I told you three times and this is the last time.
    hda and sda are different types of drives. You most likely do not have both on the same system.
    Look up in google hard disk drive types.
    Read and comprehend what you find out.
    Then go to the ubuntu website, and start reading every tutorial on installation that you can find. Don't read just one, read them all.
    If you can not get past the difference in hard disk drive types then you will never get anywhere with BT. Installation is only the beginning.
    Don't worry about not being able to use BT right now, it's probably not going away anytime soon. Come back after you get some basics down.
