thanks xatar.It helped me a lot.I love yakuake
I followed your howto , not to eject the cd rom but I did something wrong because I can not shut down my machine since I altered the code above.

If you still have your ISO just boot it and copy the original file back to your hardrive, over writing the altered file.
That is exactly the code I have running on mine, although I did see that fault once on another laptop.
try this code:
# eject cdrom devices
#echo "Ejecting all CDROMs..."
#list_cdrom_devices | while read DEVICE; do
# cdrecord dev=$DEVICE -eject >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
# can't use eject because it's not working with our kernel
# eject -s $DEVICE >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
echo "It's safe to switch the computer off now"
echo -ne "Press Enter to $command "
You will have to press enter to either reboot or shutdown at the end, takes me back to the AT power supply days!!! Ah, the good times!
This is a great write up. People new to Backtrack, or linux should really read it before posting questions.
I agree. But, since it isn't, I've been bumping it whenever I start to see people asking questions, that have been asked and answered MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of times.

Thanks xatar. I always wondered how to get the leetmode sysinfo up. Now I know.
