    Default Newbie here; this the right place to post this?

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this? I'm new to backtrack and I'm going to install it in a bit. I've had a bit of experience with ubuntu but still a beginner with linux. I was advised by a friend that backtrack is a good linux distro so I decided I would give it a go. A quesiton about these forums, are newbies like me welcome here as in asking questions after not having been able to find the answer with google or are these forums more like debian forums? Nice to meet you all.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Re-read the rules that you agreed to when you signed up. Also see the "stickied" threads at the top of the newbie section.
    Also don't be afraid to search for yourself both here on the forums and google. We highly encourage this. These things will make your stay more pleasant.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Asking questions related to BackTrack is fine as long as you have put in effort to resolve the problem yourself first. You'd probably be best off not asking basic Linux questions though, this is required knowledge as BackTrack is considered an Advanced special purpose Linux distro.

    Just make sure you demonstrate in your posts that you have searched, include details about things you have tried and what you have learned so far.

    You may want to check out this with specific reference to the link in Addendum one. If you follow those guidelines, as well as the rules posted above by archangel.amael, you should be fine.
    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.
