1. WEP does not require a password list.
2. Password lists can be kept anywhere you have space. check out SkullSecurity for a great repository of password lists.
If you'll forgive my stupidity, after watching some Youtube videos about Backtrack, I heard some of the people talk about a place where you could store extra passwords because BT only had a certain amount. Where do you get these lists from? I couldn't even crack my own wifi and, it's only WEP. any help would be greatly appreciated and,if this is in the wrong area, I apologize.
Wow. I found the lists that they had there. It was extensive to say the least. when I boot from a Live cd(well dvd in this case), do I put the passwords in a text file or something and, I think I remember one of the videos saying something about the password area. I'm a severe noob to all of this.
As purehate said, there is no need for password lists while decrypting WEP-keys.
But you'll find some useful password lists in /pentest/passwords/wordlists for aircrack-ng, pyrit, cowpatty, if you're going to bruteforce your own WPA-encrypted network.
If you're in need of storage while running backtrack in live-cd mode, why don't you just mount an usb stick ?
Forget WEP, that's not important. I was just saying that I couldn't even crack my own network. My main concerns are Handshakes, Passwords and, Stuff like that. I tried so many times to get it to boot from a USB(yes, I followed the directions as it said) but, failed.
