Create a BackTrack 4 persistent USB drive

BackTrack is widely considered the complete hacker boot disc. Born out of WHAX this security sharp linux distro has been years in the making, and finally version 4 final is out.

One of the best ways to experience BackTrack 4 (BT4) is by creating a USB boot drive. Simply download the ISO and “burn” it to a USB drive with a tool like unetbootin.

BackTrack even offers a VMDK if you’re interested in playing around in VMware or VirtualBox.

In this episode Darren guides you through partitioning, formatting and installing BackTrack 4 to a USB drive and configuring persistence.
