your monitor shouldn't need a driver. Are you using the driver from Nvidia?

My freind if you are using backtrack4 just update your software repositories with checking off the caninical repositories for the ubuntu 8.10 release. Then search nvidia in the synaptic manager.
Other wise go to the nvidia site to download their latest driver.

just an advice for you: from the knowledge that u show now, i say u are no where near the specs neede to run bt. Its highly advanced;only to
the pentester is it a tool, start off nice and easy with debian or others like ubuntu. Improve the knowledge, before you tackle down resources.
Anyway i may be wrong, but hey if u are a starter of linux like me, you can use most of the tools bt uses ,by downloading it from the ubuntu repos if you plan to use ubuntu. One more piece of advice use bt only as a live distro, dont install it to your hdd, unless u know what u r doing.

cheers, if u want help post again,
tinman.

I stand by my response in your other (duplicate) thread:
Quote:
Check out this site: http://distrowatch.com/
and if all else fails, google. (actually you're better off starting with google )
Other good beginner distros (short for 'distribution': different 'flavors' of linux): linuxmint, mepis, openSUSE, ad infinitum (almost). There are literally thousands of different linux distros out there; everyone has their favorites. Backtrack is a distro designed specifically for forensics and penetration testing of systems and networks (and therefore tends to lend itself more to advanced users). Try one of the more beginner-friendly versions first; pick one and have fun!

And (belatedly) welcome to LQ!
t1nm@n has suggested the same.

However, you don't seem open to this suggestion, so, good luck...

My friend there are 2 ways to bring up ur own OS. In the *nix culture we would either start from scratch eg: Debian, SuSe, Redhat, Slackware etc
however debian and many others have a solid frontend;so most distros like ubuntu and backtrack in your case are based on it(debian). You must do googling often so that u have a clear idea about the stuff u want to do. Also keep in mind that Backtrack is evolutionary in the world of infosec,
so if u want to learn linux and startoff with the right foot, let this forum help you.

post if u have any trouble.

tinman.
