    Default Help, what linux operating system do i install?

    I am using a mac osx 10.5.7
    I am using Parallels.
    I have a big enough cd to burn backtrack 3 onto, which i will do as soon as i find out what linux operating system to use. Right now i am just using an iso file to boot off of.
    I need to know what linux operating system to use, the list of choices are:

    1. Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    2. Red Hat Enterprise Server 3
    3. SUSE Linux Enterprise
    4. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
    5. Debian GNU/Linux
    6. Red Hat Linux
    7. Fedora Linux
    8. CentOS Linux
    9. OpenSUSE Linux
    10. Mandriva Linux
    11. Xandos Linux
    12. Ubuntu Linux(Pre Selected)
    13. Other Linux Kernel 2.4
    14. Other Linux Kernel 2.6
    15. Other Linux

    I don't have a linux install disk, the Parallels Program has them pre-installed
    I tried using Ubuntu Linux but it freezes at the backtrack loading screen.
    Floppy Drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M is the last thing that comes up on the screen is there away that i c an post a pic of it?
    Thanks in advance Shane.

    PS. I would prefer to use backtrack 4 cause i am using a RT73 Device for injection, but i don't know if the Beta-release has the drivers already installed or if the pre release does?

    BackTrack is its own operating system. Or are you asking what system to dual boot it with?

    edit: Bad play of words on my part, BackTrack is it's own Linux operating system. Nothing else is required. I thought you wanted to install a second OS along side.

    There are tutorials how to install from the live CD onto your hard drive, just search on the forums

    I assume you want to know which version of Linux you should configure Parallels to use for the BackTrack VM. AS you may have been able to gather from the responses you have got so far, this wasn't very clear.

    Try in this order:
    1. Other Linux Kernel 2.6
    2. Debian GNU/Linux
    3. Other Linux
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
