Hi, first of all thanks to all the people who have made BT3 possible and waiting for BT3 final eagerly. Now before starting the installation make sure the MD5 checksum of the original and the downloaded BT3 iso file. Assuming that VMware Workstation installed lets move forward and install BT3.
-First create a virtual machine with following configurations:-
| Guest Operating System: Linux |
Version: Other Linux 2.6 Kernel
Memory: Leave it as default
Networking: leave it as default
Hard File Size: 8GB
-Now click o play button on the tool bar to run the Virtual machine and select any of the options from the boot menu.
-After it has booted into BT3 open the Terminal window and use following commands.
| fdisk /dev/sda |
+7168M and press enter
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/backtrack
Keep the configurations as follows:-
| Source (Backtrack CD): |
Install Backtrack to : /mnt/backtrack
Write New MBR (lilo.mbr) to : /dev/sda
Installation method: Real
Uncheck :-Restore Original MBR after lilo
Then reboot the by selecting Logoff from KDE menu and voila BT3 is installed in VMware.
