I'm looking for instructions (or help) in updating apps in BT3 such as Cowpatty and Kismet to their current releases. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I would like to configure a dual-boot setup with BT4 (instead of using Vmware) but I'm afraid I might disrupt my XP OEM install and also don't know if I can remove a dual-boot scenario properly should the need arise.
If there is a will there is a way. If there is no will then use a hammer.I would like to configure a dual-boot setup with BT4 (instead of using Vmware) but I'm afraid I might disrupt my XP OEM install and also don't know if I can remove a dual-boot scenario properly should the need arise.
I was tempted to stick with BT3 as well, it was familiar and with BT4 some things are just different !
It would be crazy to do so though, would strongly suggest you find out what you can do to get BT4PF running smoothly..
Does your laptop support booting from usb ? cant you simply make Live USB with persistent changes ? That would be the next best thing if bT4 really cant run on your VMplayer
Thanks for the help,
I'll probably end up going with the USB version of BT4. Vmware is proving to be an uneeded burdon on my system resources.
www.BlackViper.com: Operating System Guides. It was descriptions of every services so you can have an idea of what you can turn off and what you must leave on. My windows is running smoothly (VMware too) because i disabled some unneeded services. It is a little time consuming to disable each service by hand, but it's worth the shot, i promise! And if you're too lazy, the site has registry configurations to disable services automatically. But my advice would be to make it by hand, for obvious reasons.
Hope it helps!
Well if you do decide to make live usb install, it really is fairly easy.
I followed this tut;
So basically booting off a usb and then installing to 2nd usb (8gig)
and then updated the kernel following Muts' blogpost here;

I'm up and running with Cain using the dictionary and brute force attacks on wpa cap files. My next area to learn is doing the precomputations with genpmk and learning more about rainbow tables.
Still learning and progressing, from zero about a month ago :-)
