1. Make sure you are using the 32 bit iso, it works with more computers.
2. I use 32 Bit Backtrack 5 R1 Gnome flavor on my flash drive.
3. Check this link http://www.breakthesecurity.com/2011...k-5-r1-on.html
4. Not sure which download method you are using but i used the torrent method (its legal and it doesn't seem to be affected as much by my university's QoS)

i dont penetration test professionally, just as a hobby right now but i use backtrack enough to realize they have major issues with each new release... there is people who are still die hard bt3 fans, im still using bt4r2...

i mean bt5 doesnt have so many packages i got used to using :/ and the live environment is just less useful because of it... things like networking being enabled by default is stupid for penetration testing purposes

it just seems like the entire dev is switching over to cater the ignorant masses who think hacking is leet and want to install backtrack on everything rather than actually USING a live disc to get stuff done

the thing that angers me the most about bt5, is i can understand changing packages included on the disc, however, they removed a lot of packages from the repos :/

Oh My God...You have summed up what I have been telling my "apprentice." Backtrack is a Tool. And Yes I do penetration testing for a living. As a Tool I install it to my SD card in my "Hackbook-Pro" as I so affectionately call it. It has no business being my primary OS, and the kernel tweaks and software installed on it makes it difficult to use it as a primary OS. I do prefer Pwnsauce over bt5 though.

{edit} Btw Ent I wanted to list my Certs too but I don't want to be a copycat

a lot of people list there certs more so in the networking section though, its nice that i listed them cause occasionally i get PMs by people who have concerns about the tests

and yeah, i been thinking about doing an SD card install for my laptop as well got a asus ROG laptop so i can take advantage of the cuda to do cracking with a patched aircrack or pyrit, and installing the packages to do it every time can be annoying some times when im doing demonstrations or tests a few times a day

but i would definitely go with bt4r2 instead of bt5, the fact they dropped the repos for 4r2 makes me kinda sad but luckily i can still manually install everything so i have some scripts to set up certain programs on my flashdrive

talking to the devs for backtrack recently made me a little disappointed because the distro is getting enough attention that they have a larger crowed they have to please, but they are picking the intro level people to please rather than people who know what they are doing

Yeah I understand having a large learning curve isn't a good thing but alienating your "power-users" really hurts your credibility in the "big-boys" world. I actually ran Fedora Security Lab for a while because I refused to use backtrack especially since it ships with KDE4 (not that big of a gnome fan)

{edit} Also I use an SD so that when I am just messing around if someone were to catch me hacking I can toss the SD card and only have windows with no hacking software for evidence. I spoof my mac address and roll from there. Personally it saved me at the Houston airport a year ago. I didn't know the IT guys were serious people...but they tracked me down to my terminal and after spotting them I closed my laptop and hid it and watched them question a kid with a macbook and his android tethered to it...luckily the kid didn't get into any trouble...I would have felt horrible.
