First thing i would like to say hello since im a new member. I am a total newbie to linux/backtrack. To be honest i have never really used any of these before. The reason i want to learn is because i plan on studying networks at uni next year and hopefully some years down the line be able to become a network security expert. i realize that i cant just start using backtrack , so would ubuntu be a good choice of distro to start with ? also i need to buy a usb wireless adapter, any suggestions (i know that some exist that dont really work with backtrak/other linux distros ) .
Once again thanks
