    Default Adding .txt file to LiveCD

    Hi,
    I was wondering, in which folder can I add a txt file to the backtrack 2 iso? I tried adding it in the /bt folder but it caused a boot error....

    Make a separate partition and put whatever you want there.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Why not just make a new directory and put it there.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Should I create the folder under /bt or in the main iso folder that contains /boot and /bt? Could I put my text file in the 'optional' folder under /bt ? I can't seem to get it to work

    I have no idea. Try different options and see what works.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    You could try to make a dir with the txt-file(s) you want to add and convert it with dir2lzm to a lzm-file which you place in the modules- or rootcopy-folder of the cd. Not tested, but should work. (You should find the file(s) then in the root-folder)

    btw: The files in the optional-folder will be ignored, except when you use the "load="-cheatcode. See slax.org/cheatcodes.php

    the best place for a single file is the rootcopy directory..........

    Default Arghh!

    this is so frustrating... I tried burning the iso with aircrack-ptw, by using both methods outlined in another thread suggested by baxter and shamanvirtuel, i.e.

    1) Baxter - by replacing root.lzm with an updated root.lzm file and adding aircrack-ptw to the same directory. (/bt/base)
    2) Shamanvirtuel - I tried putting the aircrack-ptw.lzm file directly in /bt/modules

    and both didn't work... maybe I interpreted the directions wrongly?
    I also tried adding the file aircrack-ptw and aircrack-ptw.tar.tgz to the /bt/rootcopy folder and that didn't work either.

    As for the text file that I'm trying to include, I put that in the /bt/rootcopy folder and that didn't work as well... please help me! I'm burning at 4x using imgburn and I've burned a workable copy before so there shouldn't be anything wrong with my bt2final.iso file. I'm creating a new iso everytime I add files to it... what am I doing wrong...

    When I try to boot the CD, I get text scrolling saying that there's a problem with the boot, 'sorry..' , something along those lines...

    I keep getting scrolling text which says "Image Checksum error. Sorry...". This time I tried putting the new aircrack suite.lzm in the /bt/modules folder and the same thing happened... do I have a corrupted file?
