    goon123, you must familiarize yourself with the auto complete function that comes in linux, all you have to do is type

    Code:
    bt ~ # /etc/d
    Once you have typed to the d in the command, press the tab key on the keyboard and it will provide you with the available filenames or commands

    like so

    Code:
    default/ dhcpc/
    bt ~ # /etc/d
    then just type the letter that is after the d in the command that you wish to use, so in this case.
    Code:
    tar -zxvf /mnt/hdc_cdrom/V
    When you hit tab on the V, you will get the completed filename, when you have accustomised yourself to the autocomplete you will never want to use windows again

    hi
    When you put in commands... "VM -> install VMware Tools"

    VMware mounts a virtual CD in backtrack with the tools already on it.
