    Default Diference between BT R versions

    Hello there!
    I have some questions.First of all, what is the difference between Backtrack 5 R3, R2, R1 and Backtrack 5?
    Also, I tried to read wiki to see how I install the OS, but I couldn't find the appropriate section.I want to install Backtrack (with the easiest way) and have dual-boot with Win xp.
    Thanks in advance

    There is a dual boot install option on the Wiki, I suggest you try and read that up see if that's what you want.
    As for the differences, generally there are upgrades (kernel and applications) between them. We recommend you use the latest backtrack 5 r3.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !

    R is short for Release.

    >R value == Newer release.

    Using R in such a manner is a widely known industry standard. If you're not familiar with it then BT might not be a good distro for you as it's aimed at IT/IS professionals and paired with tools which can cause damage to networks and resources. Used such in the wrong way may land you in legal trouble or causing headaches and financial loss for others. You might be better off and more comfortable using Ubuntu which is aimed at a more general user base.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
