    Default lol im a dumba$$ and just wanted everyone to know so they dont do this!

    ok, i was following the wonderfull tutorial here
    Backtrack 4 USB Install - Offensive Security

    on how to get a bootable bt4 pre final usb going and i got to the part where you make the file system. i havnt had much sleep in the last 3 days as im in seattle and its been 95+ degrees out for the last week and well yeah... so i go to enter the mkvfs.vfat -F 32 -n BT4 /dev/sdb1 command and i enter it verbatim...

    problem is my usbkey was /dev/sdc1.... sdb1 was my primary windows hard drive.... ooops
    anyway wanted to put this out as a tale of caution to the newbies out here... DONT MESS WITH PARTITIONS WHEN YOU HAVNT SLEPT IN 3 DAYS!
    .....
    you may now flame me horridly i deserve it.

    An unexpected benefit of flubbing the BT4 install process - cleaning the Windows virus from your system.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
