    Default How to install backtrack 5 in vmware?

    I am trying to follow the instructions to install backtrack 5 on VMware but the I cannot get the jumbled up commands on the backtrack homepage to work. Perhaps the commands are jumbled up and I was typing in the wrong one but I get to the GUI in the VMware image but get confused when I go to installing the VMware tools.

    How about reading this from the Wiki: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...p/VMware_Tools
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    I have been having issues with vmware and BT(USB Wi-Fi device not working)
    I had to build a new Rig and install BT to a flash drive to get over the errors
    so just be warned
    BTW i never needed to use VMware tools (all tho i did install them at some point)
    BT works good without it installed

    I usually copy the vm version of the BackTrack to the Virtual Machine ( such as : VMware Fusion ) . Then run / power on the BackTrack.
    For the best performance I recommend you to install the VMware Tools.
