== How To Install BackTrack OS ==

Step 1. Downloading Backtrack
Download this ISO . (This is the Backtrack Operative System)

Step 2. Recording the Backtrack OS Into a DVD .

The .iso you downloaded, is the Backtrack Operative System. You have to record it into a DVD.

To do so;
Download .iso Burner:

Install .iso Burner, and Open it.

Now, click (...)
Select the .iso File
Insert the DVD and Press BURN .

Step 3. BIOS Config and DVD Boot

[Now, we want our PC to start from the Backtrack DVD (The one we recorded in Step 2) We need to set up our BIOS to start from CD and NOT from Hard Drive.]

To set your BIOS to start from cd/dvd:

Reboot your PC, at very first, (When the brand of your motherboard appears) Press F2 (It can be different , but its mostly F2) .

Search for Boot somewhere in your BIOS Settings.

CD-DVD ROM, should be your 1st Boot Device.

Save your new settings, and close your BIOS.

Step 4. Booting Backtrack

Open your CD/DVD Tray and insert the DVD where you recorded the BackTrack.iso .

Backtrack should start booting.

Then, press OK.

This should be enough to install Backtrack.

Step 7. Installing Backtrack 1

Next to the Home icon, we have a Shell, or Terminal Icon; Press it.

With "Shell" open, type this:
ls /mnt
------------ [floppy drives, hd, cd etc. should appear there...]
mkdir /mnt/hda1
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
