    Default If you are new to Back Track or Linux read this thread.

    Many people who are new to Back Track may also be new to Linux. Learning BT can be a daunting task, while also trying to learn Linux. As such if you are new to Linux we highly encourage you to learn the basics first. There are literally millions of pages of resources available on the internet to do this.

    Since we can't really assess a given user's knowledge, skills, and attribute levels we suggest to everyone starting out to learn to use something like Ubuntu since BT is based on it. One of the reasons is the amount of information available to support the new user. In addition Ubuntu is designed to be as easy as possible for a user with zero Linux knowledge to get up and running. Now while most of us will not really care if you persist on using BT as your starting platform, please note that we can't possibly be expected to teach you those basics. Furthermore using BT may cause you to get side-tracked in learning. Many people have trouble with those basics and then make a post immediately on using one of the many Penetration Testing tools without having resolved the previous problem. This shows that those tools, can be a distraction to the beginner.

    The following is a collection of resources to help aid others to learn those basics. There is no real order of importance in the list and it is not all inclusive. Feel free to make a post in this thread and add links to resources that you find or found helpful. Please do not use this thread to add "warez" etc., say "hello" or ask a question, as those will just be deleted/moved.

    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.
