    Question What type of linux does BackTrack use

    What type of Linux does Backtrack use because i am trying to download something and it is asking if it is 32 bit or 64-86 bit and RPM or DEB. Which is it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    It uses Linux 2.6

    But seriously, I think you should know if you are using a 32 or 64 bit machine, and as you probably don't, I'm going to say download the 32 bit one. A deb will be your best bet (get it from source if possible).

    It should be strongly noted that your requirement to ask the question indicates a fairly heavy knowledge gap that you will need to overcome before you can use this distribution properly - there isn't a really big red button here.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.
