    Hello,
    If you have installation problems with air-imager under backtrack operating system then there is a temporary solution of this. You will need to create a temp directory and then you will need the air-imager to place in that directory. Now copy all the binaries to the directory. Also you can create a symbolic link to it so that it can be executed from the terminal and to all users.

    How the air-image works
    If I take this code
    Code:
    mount / dev/hda3 / mnt/hda3
    It means:
    Mount the partition hda3 in the folder that is in hda3 mnt right?
