    Well that's not really a good solution trying to ignore problems instead of solving them.

    I gave you a hint on where to start or look. You just seem to be out for a quick and easy answer. That won't help you at all since you will more likely hit a couple of walls while dealing with BT3.

    Ubuntu is by far easier to use than BT.

    Well we do help you, but you are always finding an excuse or something. Just go ahead from what you've been given, work your way towards it and earn the next hint to get it up and running.

    No Pain, No Gain. Easy as it is.

    Code:
    title BackTrack
         root (hd0,1)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz max_loop=255 initrd=initrd.gz init=linuxrc load_ramdisk=1 
             prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw
         initrd /boot/initrd.gz
         boot
    So i just need someone to tell me how exactly need to look like this part???I have backtrack installed on sda2

    Maybe you missed to copy something?
    Also besides that you get to the command line ok?
