    if you are using Backtrack 3 there is an option to use VESA, try that one, it should bring you to GUI

    hope this helps!

    Ok, I got both working fine now, thanks for the X suggestion. Now I have 1 more thing that is really bothering me. I can't seem to get the wifi to come up in backtrack when I want. I have gotten it to work. One method I was doing was starting linpus rebooting and then go into backtrack and the wifi would come up. If I reboot again and go into backtrack it doesn't work at all. So I have to use the method of linpus reboot then into backtrack. Its ****Ing annoying. How can I just get it to always work? iwconfig shows the ath0 adapter but when I scan in wireless assist no networks are found and kernel module is always loaded.

    Well I guess it depends on how you are wanting it to work. For my purposes this serves for penetration testing using the bluetooth to test vulnerabilities. I'm not actually using the bluetooth to sync the data between the computer. I boot off a live USB for backtrack. However the bluetooth should work in the default OS or ubuntu. You will need all of the bluetooth packages installed which can be found in yum. Also run a lsusb from a terminal and it should show up the USB device.
