    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.

    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

    daedalus1776 could of not made it more simple.

    You have spent 2 days downloading the WRONG ONE.
    If you dont have VMWARE and dont want to use VMWARE dont download the version for it.

    You want the ISO, so you can do non VMWARE related things.

    If you dont understand ISO and VMWARE you should probably leave and use windows or something
