    Default Help with BackTrack 4 needed

    Hi All!

    I'm new to this,

    I just installed BT 4 in my VMware player and so far so good. Now, I realized in you tube videos that for all the users when they open BT it says root@bt: # and when I open mine it says bt ~ # is this normal? I cant see my wireless card when I type airmon-ng

    Any help is appreciated!

    You seem to login as a normal user rather then root, correct?
    Try to su to root, or login as root at boot.

    no. ignore that.
    you are already root (as denoted by the '#' prompt). no standard users have been created (unless you specifically created one) and you have full rights on the system. As to your wireless card issue, there are tons of threads and FAQs on the forums, I suggest that you attempt an exhaustive search before asking for help. If you still need help after you search, be sure to list all of the steps that you have tried and the relevant hardware.

    good luck with that.

    Command prompts are pretty basic as far as computers go.
    Might want to look into those. In the meantime leave BT alone.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
