    I'm going to just throw this out there but this distro is't too friendly to noobs in general. Most of the tools here require root privileges to run, but by logging into root and typing into console windows you are exposing yourself to some major fail if you mistype a command. Also Backtrack doesn't really come with documentation other than the man pages for most of the tools. If you want help for very general questions that don't have any bearing on pen-testing, ask them in the ubuntu forums. Or search via google.
    On a personal note i learned linux on my own as well. I bought a FOSS magazine back in 2003 that had a copy of fedora, then it was knoppix and then slackware. A lot of forum posts and O'reilly books later i'm pretty happy with my knowlege of linux. I did take college courses but the linux they teach in most college is pretty boring and not very real-world. Most students with A's in a college linux class can't even build a custom kernel, and they had problems figuring how to use linux from a command line only.
    My best advice is probably to run a live disk and play with some commands, learn the command line and embrace its power. Read some forums, read some of the rally good linux blogs out there too. If you do all that and practice you won't feel like a noob for long.

    Everybody was a noob at the beginning.Do not feel down because of it, just read as much as you can and practice by the end you will get a good grasp of wi-fi , networking , drivers and OS architecture and implementation.
    Read these books: Windows internals,802.11 wireless security (heavy on math and theory),Understanding Linux Network Internals.
