    Cain and Abel is a Windows application and i don't think that there is a linux version of it. Plus BackTrack is more deeper and sophisticated security distro than Cain & Abel. If you learn how to use BackTrack you will forget about Cain and Abel.

    However, Cain and Abel is a great Windows application and one day it will have most of BackTrack stuff too but that wouldn't happen anytime soon..

    Cain can be installed via wine to an extent - however, not all of the features work.

    Learning to use a mix of Windows and Linux App's would be the best way forward if you are starting out. Bt2 is good but you shouldn't rely on it being the sole tool in your arsenal. Cain and Abel is extremely useful if you can master it.
