Installing Back Track 4



  • Back Track is best Linux OS thats Available for Ethical hacking & penetrations use because its have most popular software in that so we can use for Hacking.
  • So for that reason Backtrack is become popular for all those who want to learn or do hacking stuff.
  • backtrack 4 is pre launch that have really good programs in build but for customization we need to install backtrack in our hard disk so in this tutorial i will show you how to install backtrack 4 in HDD.
  • We use virtual machine for installing like VMWARE because Linux base OS have some hardware compatibility issue in vmware we don't need additional driver package for installation.
  • Start this tutorial.

  • After booting for BT4 live DVD you need to go GUI version of backtrack so need to type command "startx"
  • When GUI has started open terminal page & type command "ubiquity" installer will start.
  • In installer first page will ask you "Location" so select your region like mine India so i need to select the city kolkota then click on "forward".
  • Second page of installer will ask about "keyboard layout" by-default it will highlight on USA but you can change it of your suitable layout. then click on "forward".
  • Third page is prepare disk space chose "Guided -use all disk" size of 8 GB as i want to say that this BT 4 need 4 GB default installation size so use 8GB virtual HDD because if in farther we need to do some kind of modification so we need some empty disk space.
  • Step five "Who are you?" its a login information so file that but remember that login name is in small linux doesn't support Caps. latter's & need to enter password just use a single word like min i use Log in name= indian & password= 1. look on that last line "What is the name of this computer?" its really important cause is will reflect after you log in so i use "IndianBox" then click on "forward".
  • Step seven "Ready to Install" it will give you brif details where you you see Language, name, login name & location see if that information is according right for you if you need to do some changes click on back button or click install for start Installation.
  • Installing system will start it will automatically creates Ext3 partition for boot root & all.
  • Installation complete click on "Restart now"
  • when restarting it will ask you "remove disk then press ENTER:" just press enter key remember when system will restart go to boot menu select boor from HDD to bring BT4 start from hard disk.
  • At start it will ask you Login: enter user name & password like mine
Code: ( in red thats screen will shows and Blue i enter command)

IndianBox login: indian
Password : 1 (you will not see any password you type just type correct password and press enter key)
Install complete
  • you will get following command
Code: ( in red thats screen will shows and Blue i enter command)

indian@IndianIndianBOX:-$

  • But there was some problem i don't have full root access so some of my program will ask me authentication for root password and about me i don't like any restriction so i always want to login with root account because it will have full rights so lest remove this user for next time we directly enter root user name and password for login and gets root access that y i choose simple password for Indian user login so we can simply remove that. so we start now.

  • After login with indian user i will type following command.
Code: ( in red thats screen will shows and Blue i enter command)

indian@IndianIndianBOX:-$ sudo su
[ sudo ] password for indian: 1 (you will not see any password you type just type correct password and press enter key)
root@IndianBOX:/home/indian# passwd (this will change root password by default root password is toor so anyone can use that so i will change is for my safety)
Enter new UNIX password: (enter new password here)
Retype new UNIX password: (enter new password here again)
password: password update successfully
root@IndianBOX:/home/indian# exit
indian@IndianIndianBOX:-$ exit

  • Now login with root always.
Code: ( in red thats screen will shows and Blue i enter command)
IndianBOX login: root
Password:
root@IndianBOX:~#
(this is alternative for you but as i says i don't need any restrictions so i need to remove use indian from my BT4 so here is the command.)

Code:
( in red thats screen will shows and Blue i enter command)
root@IndianBOX:~# userdel indian
root@IndianBOX:~# rm -rf /home/indian/
(done i remove indian user from BT4 now we will start GUI White root)
root@IndianBOX:~# startx
