    Question New to backtrack need pointing in the right way

    Hi guys, i am new to backtrack 5 i have it installed side by side of my windows

    I have managed to crack my old wep router and my wpa, but i havnt learn't anything, just followed step by step tutorials and have no understanding what the commands mean or do, i did abit of reading on how to steal live session cookies but its the same step by step guide. i have searched the forums but had no look in finding some sort of "noobs guide to backtrack"

    Just need a some sort of reading material to learn from.

    How to install programs like wifi zoo or any program
    And what all the basic commands do in the terminal

    I have never used linux before and i hear backtrack isnt the best version to start off with, but i reckon if i start with the hardest i will learn more.

    Any sort of info will help

    Thanxz in advance

    I suggest, that you try to read something about network. Maybe look at some shows from Hak5 (the early seasons).

    Start out by trying some Man-in-the-middle, and read about ARP(-spoofing). Basically, when ever you find a tool that does something, read up on the theory behind it.

    Backtrack is based off Ubuntu, so for learning how to use Linux, I suggest reading up on Ubuntu. As for using Backtrack itself, it's really more about figuring out what tools to use for a penetration test and then checking if that tool is included in Backtrack.

    Some books that can get you started: BackTrack 4: Assuring Security by Penetration Testing and Gray Hat Hacking The Ethical Hackers Handbook, 3rd Edition
