    Default Silly question: Where are "home" and "system" icons ?

    Sorry for such a silly question, but I'm a novice in Linux. I have used much time Backtrack 3 and I'm now migrating to Backtrack 4. It took some time to me to find the "startx" command, that I already found. Question now, after searching in the forums is: Where are or how can I put the "HOME" and/or "SYSTEM" direct access icons in the desktop after executing the startx command?

    Thanks so much for your help and thanks much more for all your work.

    Those would be directories of any user/s that would be created. Since BT is designed to be run as root there is no "HOME" directory. roots "home" is /
    If you want to create a link to that on the desktop there are plenty of guides on the internet for doing so.

    Thanks for so fast answering my question. I already accepted it was somehow a silly question and I was a newbie to Linux.

    I'll try further... and try to learn
