After more playing around with Backtrack 3 today I've noticed that if I save something on the desktop or something and restart the pc it would be gone. My Backtrack 3 is on a SD card running on an Eee pc. I've read some places that if I partitioned the SD card so 1 partition is the OS and the other is for files, I would be able to save stuff to the desktop etc. Is this true?

Another thing is that my audio doesn't work either when playing music in VLC or some other player that came with Backtrack 3. Sorry if this is so easy to solve never used Linux in my life, been reading all day but with the Shell commands etc its so confusing.
