    Default ****A question about installation of Backtrack.Help a noob please****

    Just downloaded Backtrack 5R3 .It took 2 days.
    Then afterwards I cant find the iso file while installing it in Vmware Player.
    It turns into some folders.
    Where is the iso image?
    Please help me guys.I want to install it in vmware but cant find the iso image :'(

    Please tell me how to install it in Vmware because I cant find the iso file. Or is there any other way of doing it? If yes please tell me.

    if you need an iso, download the iso from the downloads page. I'm guessing you downloaded the vmware image type. You need to do some research on how to use vmware. Keep in mind, Backtrack is NOT a beginners linux distribution.

    heh! but for this beginner it is the only way I can learn... a crash course in brain surgery if you will, elbows deep... the hail mary!

    myself I have found the search function to be very helpful.

    While I respect the "jumping in the deep end" approach, users need to be aware that members of this forum are not here to answer basic linux or computing questions. Hence "BackTrack is not a beginners Linux distribution" gets thrown around so often.

    for some reason I... (and others) seem to want to begin on Backtrack, and there is a wealth of information in this forum for beginners.

    I have no idea what sudo or apt-get means but I've managed to get BT installed, my nVidia drivers installed, my Alfa working fairly decent... Synaptic installed and 420 some odd Mb of packages downloaded/updated. Ive added xine and accompanying codecs, had three successes with gerix each in under 10mins and managed to get my desktop customized a little...

    Yeah I would have to take back anything negative I may have expressed before. And I might have to disagree somewhat about learning on BT. Seems to be put together very intuitively, its not missing packages to run a package already installed and it is detailed enough to be expletive of itself.

    works very well for me and I am sure some other users like me who have some or more than a little knowledge ut are just new to linux.

    You need to download the vmware image type. It is in the download page..If have done it already, then need to do as deadalus1776 is telling you...Refer to the vmware homepage and see how to install...

    Luck.

    the downloaded bt5r3 must be in one single .iso file. u might accidentally extract the .iso file when it opens in archiever like winrar or 7zip. Download the .iso file again if necessary and do not extract it or open it. Then try it with VMware. It should work fine.

    this tutorial might help u
