    Default BackTrack 2.0 Final

    Hi everyone. I'm still trying to find my way around Linux, and am having problems installing BT 2.0 Final as a VM under VMware Server. I did not have any problems installing the Beta version of BT 2.0 as a VM with Virtual PC 2007. The installer says that it installed correctly and I can navigate to the files at /mnt/sda1/. However, upon restarting the OS I get nothing but a single underscore.

    I don't know if this helps but /mnt/sda1/etc/lilo.conf is as follows...

    boot = /dev/hda
    prompt
    timeout = 20
    bitmap=/boot/splash.bmp

    change-rules
    reset

    vga = 0x317

    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = current
    initrd = /boot/splash.initrd
    label = bt
    read-write

    Thanks for any help or pointers!!!

    try root=/dev/sda1 and maybe you should switch the boot=/dev/sda as well ...

    i tried to vm with vm 2003 and it never did work right....sometimes it would boot, sometimes it would freeze. the most confusing part is it would never freeze at the same spot. id say try giving it more ram and try again. i gave it 640MB and it worked more often
