NOTE: if you run BackTrack by using this process, you will not be able to save your settings and other. You can save temporarily –  but if you eject the flash drive and re-insert it, you will get a new BackTrack. Nothing from you last session will be saved.

      And what is a “toor” password? Is that the root password? You are root already.

      Hamza ali shahid, if you are using backtrack 5 from live USB… then you don’t have to enter username and password, you are already logged in, just type “startx” for graphical interface.
