    Backtrack runs as root by default so there if you want a home folder just make one: mkdir home

    Why do you need it on the desktop ? There is a "home" directory.

    1) What's with the nasty big bold font yelling at us?
    2) Try reading about symlinks (man ln).
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    So technically roots" home directory " is / and anything you save there will show up on the desktop.
