Hi and welcome to LQ.

Unfortunately, we can't guess what this something means. Unless you post the exact error messages, there's very little we can do to help you.

On a slightly unrelated note, not that there's anything wrong with Backtrack, but why don't you install any of the standard desktop distributions that are more tailored at new Linux users?
