Thanx Man Keep It Up
Thanks for this thread. I had been trying to use the BT2 installation video and when I tried to load the VM it just gave me a black screen. Turns out I just needed to "Uncheck :-Restore Original MBR after lilo" during the bt install inside of xwindows. I guess this shows you there is more than one way to skin a cat.

Creating Linux Virtual Machines
With RAM More Than 512 MB
When trying to create a Linux virtual machine with amount of RAM greater than 512MB, you may encounter problems when trying to boot the guest OS installation.
To solve this problem, you should modify the kernel parameters by passing the mem=nopentium option to the kernel.
For example, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5,
you should perform this actions:
1 Start the virtual machine
2 When the installation media boots up, enter the following:
When the kernel parameters are modified, you can proceed with installing the Linux guest OS.
but i dont no how i can apply this to backrtack 3, any help???
Thanks for the great BT3>VMware tutorial!
Now I'd like to know if there is a way to skip the lilo boot in my vmware BT3 beta.
I mean.....it's only got bt3, so I don't need lilo.
I'd really like for it to boot directly into BT3 - just like it does from the CD or even from a USB drive.
ok, so i followed the steps, do i now leave vmware to point to the iso file under the cd rom settings?
A quick and dirty solution would be to edit lilo to automatically boot BT3 after a predetermined time, 1 second if you wish. Lilo will still flash up at start, but no user input will be needed to get into BT3.I'd really like for it to boot directly into BT3 - just like it does from the CD or even from a USB drive.
