    Default Starting my bootable CD problem

    Hi, just burned an ISO image to disk for backtrack. I am a complete linux virgin but want to start.

    When I boot from the CD I get the following command prompt

    boot:

    And that is it, what do I need to type to get going? I have tried searching but cannot find a similar problem here which answers my question.

    Thanks

    Sorry I may have been a retard. I was typing everything I could have as a command and was ketting a kernal error! I'll try simply hitting enter and see if that solves it. Sorry if I was being a jackass lol, I'll let you know how I get on.

    Thanks

    That sorted it thanks. I am now in, and I must say it is pretty intimidating seeing Linux for the first time.

    After so many years of Windows, it is going to take some aclimatising.

    I opened startx and then a few applications but where do you learn about the input commands?

    I don't suppose there is a video tutorial to get morons started is there?

    Thanks

    Ask the 'man' as the 'man' has all the answers.
