    Just stick with Nessus. You are obviously nowhere near qualified to do a penetration test, so a vulnerability/risk assessment is all you should do.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    Trying to learn to perform security testing by playing around with Backtrack is fine, but you shouldn't be doing it professionally until you are much more experienced. As a hint, if you have to ask "How do I perform a penetration test", in those or similar words, you are not ready to do it. Nor are you ready if you don't know what to do after running nmap to identify open ports. There is more to it than just learning how to use Metasploit and following a few tutorials.

    Trying to perform Penetration Testing with only basic computer knowledge is like trying to do someones taxes after only learning basic addition, or like trying a court case after watching an episode of Matlock.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
