All you people that thought you were good hackers, because you could fool
dumb sysadmins, and do a bit of social engineering, or hack something by
following someones carefully prepared text file.
Well you're about to get
fucked if you read this text file you will find out that you are a hacker
but, the only thing you can do is use someone elses ideas.
So with that in
mind here goes.
I wrote this text file because i know a lot of people who could
benefit from learning to use linux, especially when hacking.
First of all you need to get linux installed on your system so goto
http://www.redhat.com I would suggest you invest $40 in buying the newest
version of RedHat linux this way you will get all the files you want/need
on one cd.
If you have a problem with paying that price, then contact me
and i will ship you a copy for half that price, yes only $20!
If you are
really cheap (like me :-) you could try and download it, i have gotten it
to work before but it's really not worth the wait, i spent a total download
time of about 3 days to download all the files i wanted, and if one of the
files dosn't work, well you're pretty much fucked.
Whatever you decide to
do, weather it's purchasing a copy from me or from redhat.com, or being
cheap :-) and downloading it, you should read the linux documentation
project especially the installation part, it will save you hours of worry.
I will touch down very briefly on what you have to do to install linux, but
not nearly enough for you to understand the installation.
Many people will
tell you not to buy RedHat products because they're full of bugs, this is
true, and I couldn't agree more, but the bugs are present if you're trying
to hack teh box, so in this case just get RedHat Linux, since it's by far
the most user friendly and the easiest to install.
On the other hand if you
are intending to run a sophisticated webserver do NOT get redhat, get
something like slackware, or debian linux.
If you are planning to use linux to access the net etc.
.. you will
need to read the FAQ on compatability at http://www.redhat.com, i currently
don't know of any distribution of linux that supports winmodem or any other
type of modem that uses windows software to speed it up, these modems are
generally those yukky U.S robotics modems.
From now on I'm assuming you either purchased RedHat linux from me
or from RedHat.
O.K lets get started, you will need to partition your
harddrive, to do this goto dos and type in fdisk choose no. 4 to view current
If you have one large partition that fills your whole harddrive
just reserved for windows then once again you're fucked.
You need to back up
all your shit, before performing the steps below.
Once everything is backed
up go to dos yet again and type 8in fdisk, now you need to delete your
current partition and set a new primary partition the primary partition
should not fill your whole harddrive, leave as much space as you want
