    Default New to linux, could use some help.

    So i installed backtrack 4 via usb to my Toshiba nb205 netbook, it has an atheros ar 9282 wireless card, the issue I'm having is when I now start up my computer and type in "root" to sign in, it no longer prompts me for a password, it hangs for a moment and reshow's "Bt login:" with no "password:" below it, Im currently trying tio install a driver and get myself setup, so this is quite a bother.

    Any input would be highly appreciated.

    If you're "new to linux" then use a generalized distro like Ubuntu. It'll be more friendly than a specialized distro like BT that is aimed at a specific audience.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I prefer starting with backtrack, as it is Ubuntu based and I would like a large understanding of Linux to begin with. I simply want assistance with my issue.
