    hello.

    i just want to thank you for all the information you have posted here.
    also,i want to recall the reality of being a noob on linux.includding myself.i´ve had to re-install my OS a couple of times because of my inexperience on the matter.i just started messing with partitions,root user,mounting etc.

    i´m the kind of person who likes to search for his own,sometimes with unpleasant results.but,i learn from each mistake.

    sometimes newbeginners just want to have all the answers at once.¨if you just copy and paste,you´ll become less inteligent¨.

    people dont see the value of research.i strongly encourage newbeginners to look up for the answers by themself.not only because its value,but because you´ll become a smartter person on the linux,backtrack or whatever the matter you´re searching for answers.

    good luck everyone....and keep on searching.

    Default *Resources*

    Needless to say people not researching their problems for themselves has been an ever-present issue. In hopes to give something back to this forum for being such a huge wealth of knowledge I've decided to compile a little list of resources that may help give a few people a jump start in the right direction.

    THE HELP OPTION
    as obvious as it may seem I don't want to leave it out. By typing a command followed by --help or sometimes even just -h you can usually get a short run down of options and maybe even an example of the proper syntax to execute a tool or command.

    MANUAL PAGES
    if your not so sure about a tool or command there is usually a manual page for it. You can access this by typing "man" in front of the command. IE:

    Code:
    man aircrack-ng
    and you'll be able to read all about "cracking wep" right there

    TOOLS WEBSITE
    Probably one of the best sources of information. If you're still having trouble using a tool, who better to tell you how to use the it, then the people who wrote it. You can often find an abundance of info on a program on its actual website. Along with the official website you can sometimes even find a wiki which can also be very helpful.

    DIRECTORIES
    Learning to navigate directories can be an immense help.
    From the tools actual directory you can potentially find out enough information right there to save you from coming here and asking how do I use X tool. By typing the command

    Code:
    ls
    you can see everything in that tools folder including the script itself, so for instance if you were having trouble running "The Harvester" and you were in that directory typing "ls" could tell you that the script has a capital H in it and you would have to type

    Code:
    ./theHarvester.py
    Now it will no longer tell you that the file doesn't exist... problem solved.

    Another thing most new linux users overlook is extensions. By actually looking at the script you can see the extension and know that instead of just typing <./tool> you may need to type <./tool.rb> or <perl tool.pl>

    Many times there is even a docs folder or README file in the directory containing all kinds of documentation on the tool.

    Aside from all of this you can also check out these commands and links for help.

    "man bash" -----> an excellent place to start if you're new to linux

    Main Page - BackTrack Linux

    BackTrack Wiki

    FAQ - BackTrack Linux

    http://www.offensive-security.com/me...urity_Training

    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/ ----> SEARCH FORUM FIRST!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

    http://www.youtube.com/

    and when all else fails GOOGLE.

    I know this is all basic linux and common sense but I figured it may help a few people out and save them some infractions, while at the same time saving the mods a few pointless threads that would probably just be closed right out of the gate.

    Default Re: *Resources*

    To contribute with your thread I would like to point out an excellent project over at google code. Its called the Open Penetration Testing Bookmarks Collection:

    ...is just that, a collection of handy bookmarks I initially collected that aid me in my day to day work or I find in the course of research. They are not all inclusive and some sections need to be parsed but they are all good reference materials. I find having this Hackery folder in Firefox an easy way to reference syntax, tricks, methods, and generally facilitate and organize research.

    Opening it up to everyone will facilitate a knowledge transfer. Hopefully the initial set will grow and expand.

    very handy, thank you for sharing!

    If anyone else has any good resources they wanted to post here in this thread, that would be pretty cool if we could get something like that going. I think this could potentially help everyone out at least a little bit.
