    Default Aircrack

    I want to use aircrack but i can't save the packets file because the live cd
    is read-only. So i must mount a hard disk to it. What i must do to save the file?

    Install BT to hard disk or usb probably. Or indeed, use mount to mount the hard disk...

    Have you tired using a virtual machine. I'm currently using BT4 beta with Vmware Workstation 6.5.2
    You get a 30day trial but thats easily bypassed (PM me for a serial)
    Haven't had one problem so far with this set up. But i've only tested 2 WEP routers.

    That's strange to me... as far as my knowledge goes, Live CD should perform all the jobs. Before I switched to USB installation, I tried BT3 live CD, successfully saved airodump cap files, used aircrack & cracked them. I didn't had to do any sort of extra work (like mounting HDD) to achieve this. I didn't research it (coz, I didn't face any problem) but guessing that BT3 used either RAM or a swap file in the HDD to save the files..
    Is anybody having the same problem using BT4 live CD?

    Well...the live CD should be readonly since its a CD...

    It depends on where you are trying to save the pcap files.
    AFAIK the / is mounted on /dev/ram0 or similar, and this should be writable...
    Of course when you poweroff/reboot you're machine you lost the changes you made...
    To save the file you should have access to a hdd or pendrive which probably is mounted in /mnt or /media (or mount i manually)
