    The BackTrack wikis both old and slightly less old and currently unavailable were making an attempt at this, but neither of the tools lists was totally complete and would now be out of date anyway with the release of BT4 Final.

    So I guess the answer to your question is no.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Even though there aren't any specific guides to Backtrack though, there are still many guides for the individual tools provided by backtrack. I'd recommend searching for guides to the tools you plan on using the most, that's helped me in the past.

    Tools - Offensive-security.com

    This is for BT3 but a lot of the tools should match up.

    Also the 'man' command.

    The sites appear to be down. Im unsure whether its permanent or only temporary, but Id suggest that if you want to access the pages contents you may want to try and use the Internet archive or Google Cache.

    The information available on that site is, at best, skiddie-friendly and should not be used for a decent basis to Backtrack tools.

    Not that I have a better one, but just making the point known. If you really want to learn, fork out the weeks-wage worth for the offsec course. It's better written, explains more stuff, and is a lot easier to follow.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.
