I'm new to the forums and I decided to join because I was having a problem with BackTrack and I want to learn how to crack WEP! I wanted to post in the help forums but it's saying I don't have permission even though I clicked the link in my email and it said that my account had been verified..

Anyway if it's okay I'll just explain my problem here:

I'm booting BackTrack 3 off a live cd and when it's finished running anything and it's supposed to bring me to my desktop I get a black screen and my cursor. Every few seconds the cursor changes to an X and then disappears completely only to return to the center a second later as a cursor. It repeats this endlessly. Any ideas?
