Hi !

You need to tgz2lzm  first in order to create lzm boot loadable module from 
tgz package.  After that you need to place it under BT3/modules   directory.  
If you are using ISO version you need to create new iso file with the new lzm 
module.  After that nessus package will be loaded at BT start.

I prefer USB version it's simpler to modd.  With vmware you can install BT3 on 
you virtual drive and use it just like USB version.

Hi, I need some help installing Nessus on Backtrack 3

Current Setup :

VMware pointing to the ISO image of Backtrack 3

I have got the Nessus rpm and converted to tgz and unzipped using gzip on
backtrack 3 but could not proceed further.

Backtrack does not allow to store files locally

I need help to proceed further and install Nessus on Backtrack 3.

Thanks Folks  !
