Hi guys. Thanks for the help.
I've got Backtrack 5 running on a VMware image. No errors or anything during the installation. VMware tools are installed. I used the Hard drive installation instructions after having set up the virtual machine with 'Other 2.6.x Kernel'.
My problem is that when I reset the system I get the resolution back on 800x600 and I seem to have to change my $PATH environment variable to include the present working directory every time I restart.
Any ideas how I can make these settings save permanently?
