i quite new to metasploit, but heard a lot about it.

i am interested to explore way the Vulnerability scan and exploit  is made.
i am facing problems in installing metasploit in Windows XP dedicated system
for this
i installe metasploit 3.0 from archive and updated it to 3.8.

but, i am unable to create any database, whether database is mandatory for
this ?
i am not clear with installation procedure, and how to setup a basic sytem
for running exploit,
ie , that to know the available weekness of the neighbour computers in work

is it mandatory to do this use only LInux or can it be done using Windows.

please give your opinion and guidance

Hey guys,

 is the -t option from the search command broken or removed?

Help has no more details, tab completion works but if I use it, it looks
like it is broken ...

Hopefully it will get fixed, because it was very nice for searching just
one module type.

The still-not-documented-keyword-system is much more flexible (and
slower), but takes the following options:

name    Search within the module's descriptive name     name:Microsoft
path    Search within the module's path name    path:windows/smb
platform        Search for modules affecting this platform/target
type    Search for modules that are of a specific type (exploit,
auxiliary, or post)     type:exploit
app     Search for modules that are either client or server attacks
author  Search for modules written by author    author:hdm
cve     Search for modules with a matching CVE ID       cve:2009
bid     Search for modules with a matching Bugtraq ID   bid:10078
osvdb   Search for modules with a matching OSVDB ID     osvdb:875
