    Welcome to the Linux world :)

    For people to help you out, you can check on the userlist here on Linux.com and look for people available to consult.

    For the list: check on a serch engine, it is not that difficult! Don't expect the others to do the job for you ;)

    i'm kinda new here too, but i'm using Linux for almost 5 years now. If you need anything, feel free to use the community here or contact me!

    Is there a reason why you want Backtrack exactly? Do you have any pen testing to do or ... ?

    Welcome to the site guys, sorry for my delayed response, but I have been busy.

    If you are looking for a comparative program feel free to state tell us the program name and functionality and we can recommend alternate applications. However especially when looking at security based applications you will find a much larger list of available applications, many of which have functions that would be very hard to find on the windows platform, the results massively increase if you are willing to use a cli only application.
