    You should follow the video muts has created. It's on our Wiki page.

    If your getting a read-only error then you need to edit your 'lilo.conf' file. Please look at muts' video and also ALL the guides here on our forum. This question has been answered several times in many different fashions.

    Without a print-out of your lilo and your installation setup, I cant help you. My best bet for you [at this moment] would be to format everything except your XP installation [if you have one], then follow the video muts created. Everything should work fine.

    Hi,

    Backtrack doesn't work on my laptop!
    Theres an error message when trying to start the system with the startx or flux command.
    It says that it can't find a card, my laptop has got a RADEON X1250 Onboard with shared memory

    The fact is that as i experienced the files should remain read-only.
    The first time i tried the dual boot i modified to read-write, but the result was an error(not very crucial) during the boot of bt2.
    So i left it read-only and simply added the lines for the windows selection:

    other=/dev/hda1
    label=WinXp

    An it works because it never gave problems.
    Definetely i must say that installing bt has been a rather easy operation, after having found the right procedure(most of the tutorials led me to reformatting!)
