    I'm downloading it now and it is rather slow, but it's less than a two-hour wait. I'll be sharing it on one or two P2P sites tonight myself.

    I'm wondering if performing an apt-get on the pre-final will update it to the final. Gotta try that too.

    I tried that already and it doesn't work. You'll have to do a reinstall to get the "final" version which I'm doing right now :)

    There is a new kernel for once and it now use its own repository with custom applications "rewritten" for best compatibility with Backtrack. I think the goal is to make easier to get the latest tools and just general better usability.

    That's awesome, I had just finished typing apt-get when I read that. Oh well, time to download the iso!
    I bring nothing useful to the table...

    The Final version has a much smoother feel to it than the Pre.

    I have a question.

    I dual booting XP and Pre Final. What would be the easiest way for me to get rid of Pre Final and installing Final over it.

    Should I be able to delete the Pre Final partitions with XPs partition manager? I looked and saw that I can delete the logical partition. Should I do that?

    Why don't you just run it in a VM?

    I use it as my primary OS on my laptop.

    I do use it as a VM on one of my other laptops, but for this specific one I don't.

    wtf. Why? It's been out for a DAY and I can't think of any practical reason to do that.

    Well ... One of the drives I will be using will have a few other tools installed and will be persistent. The other one wont. Plus the one that is not persistent, seems to work better for hard drive installs.

    I think it's kind of an obsession I have with bootable thumb drives,lol. I have 14 USB drives that I carry around with different tools and such.

    Maybe it's just personal preference, but I like to keep my pentesting OSes separate from my production desktop OS.

    You realize you can get drives bigger than 512mb now, right? ;)

    I have it installed on physical hardware as well. The netbook is used for nothing, but pure network pwnage.

    Exactly... and that is why I do not have money,lol.

    BTW.. I managed to get it working.

    First I went on windows and deleted the logical drives and of course, I deleted where GRUB was and was not able to get back into windows icon_neutral.gif

    Anyways... I booted from the thumbdrive and ran the installation. From there I created the partitions required and was able to install BT4. Now I have the new install with about 50GB more (deleted other useless partition) and Windows is working!

    I like the new web site! :D

    Interesting, I see there is a forensics feature that lets it run without modifying the state of the drive.
