starting backtrack from cdrom


Hi I downloaded backtrack linux 5 and I burnt it to a dvd-r, the process was successful. But when I go to boot from the dvd-r, the screen comes up that says

iso linux and then it says

Boot: what do I type here to start the linux distribution after its says boot?

Did you try just pressing Enter? Also, why are you using BackTrack, rather than a normal distribution? If you're trying to crack wireless networks as your previous threads suggest, as a moderator already suggested, we can't help you with that (and you should therefore stop posting threads about things to enable you to do that).

Oh, my.

Backtrack is not a good choice for you. You will just get in trouble with it.

Please consider puppy linux.

Did you verify the MD5 checksum? Apart from that, I'd check the documentation for the distribution to see if there's anything you're missing..

Again, why are you using BackTrack instead of a regular distro?
