    Forgive me if I'm being dense, but I don't see the point in that article at all. It seems to be focused around transforming BackTrack into an everyday OS for general use, which is totally not the point of BackTrack. If you want a Linux based OS for everyday use, use something like Ubuntu.

    Try installing amsn..It is more friendly and works great. As to firefox and flash plugin, refer to the wiki in the forums...

    You don't "uninstall" backtrack. You format the hard drive and re-install whatever OS you want. In your case, Windows. If pressing F12 on boot didn't take you to a boot options menu and allow you to boot from the CD, then you need to refer to your manufacturers guide on how to do this. This isn't exactly a backtrack issue, if you know what I mean.
    Good luck though,

    Download gparted and burn it. Reboot with it..Now you have to delete the Linux partition sda1, apply changes..Now reboot with Windows CD or DVD, it will see the whole disk as "not partitioned", just follow the instructions, you have all HDD to install Windows.

    Luck.

    Yes...Boot with it. Then it will show you all partitions in your hard drive, now you erase all partitions or the one you want to get rid of, that's all..Now when booting with your Win7 disk it will see the whole drive and it will create the partition and format it. I do not see the problem...

    You need to read about partition and types of filesystems...

    Luck.
