Linux newbie, want to learn a good foundation, but move up to BackTrack eventually.
 
Hi! New to LQ, but hoping to use the forums as a learning tool. I have some really great learning materials for network security and pen testing, but they require a solid knowledge of BackTrack. I need to develop the Linux part of my brain before getting into that. Anyways, I'm always glad to participate in threads, not a knowledgeable guru, but will help where I can. Have a great day, everybody!
:D

First of all welcome to LQ.

You are kind of going about it wrong. You learn networking and security by books and schools and self teaching. Then you find out that backtrack is a useless distro made by hackers for wannabe crooks. A skilled user may find that they have a use for it but I'd suspect that most highly trained users would not care for it. They'd either know how to use all the tools or not need them in the first place.

If you want a good foundation, start with Slackware.

You'll never have a reason to move. If you do, you'll come back.
