SETUP BACKTRACK 5


This guide will show you how to download and setup BackTrack 5 to either boot off of USB, DVD, or dual-boot. Backtrack 5 is a linux build filled with a bunch of useful penetration testing tools, and will be used in the WiFi hacking tutorials as well as hacking PC tutorials.

using just a USB drive, you can run backtrack on any computer without installing anything.

What you need:
  • 4GB+ USB flash drive
  • Windows PC
  • BackTrack 5 ISO file
  • UNetbootin
