    Default fedora bootloader w/ bt4

    Hey sorry if there is already a thread for this but i couldn't find one. I am currently dual booting with windows 7 and linux fedora using the fedora grub bootloader and i was wondering if it is possible/ how to install backtrack4 on a new partition and add it to the fedora grub bootloader?

    Just install BT and Grub will auto install and add Windows and Fedora. Obviously there will be some partitioning required. FYI, if you're new to BT, you may want to run it in live mode. I'm telling you this cause it's not so much an OP SYS as a set of tools.

    Good luck

    Alright, ya, that was my plan, but when i booted the bt4 iso off a flash drive, it started in the bt4 command line and the only file was the installer. Is there a different iso i should get for running in live mode or am i missing something?

    Idealy i would like to run it in live mode, so i installed it on a flash drive with unetbootin but when i try to boot the live image i get the same problem as this guy
    Thecoder:
    Ok, now so what I did is download latest version of Backtrack 4 ISO and put it on USB.

    I have now 10 options:

    Default
    Start BackTrack Framebuffer (1024x768)
    Start BackTrack Framebuffer (800x600)
    Start BackTrack Forensics (no swap)
    Start BackTrack in Safe Graphical mode
    Start Persistent Live CD
    Start Back Track in Text mode
    Start Back Track in Graphical mode from Ram
    Memory Test
    Boot the first Hard Disk
    no answers in that thread @_@
