    Default How do I open multiple windows with a persistent CD?

    So I have an acer laptop and I'm running bt4 off of a CD from startup. According to all of the tutorials on how to crack WEP that I have looked at, you need to have multiple cmd prompts open. Since startx isn't working (it simply says "FATAL ERROR: NO SCREEN FOUND) is there another way to have multiple command prompts or tabs open and switch between them? My adapter works fine and the FAQ has nothing on this.

    If you are just using terminal you can hit ALT + F2 to open a new tab then u can just hit ALT F1 to go back to your original tab. This is nice for using backtrack straight from terminal.

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
