  1. OK... another Linux OS that is windows users friendly is Kubuntu... But I still prefer the OpenSuse distro... And just so I am clear, have you installed the ubuntu or are you running it as a live CD? Coz I don't think you can install anything if you are running the live CD...
  2. ok... Open any type of text editor... Like notepad for example in windows... and copy paste this there... #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { cout<<"Hello world"<<endl; } Save it as hello.cpp now open the command prompt and go to the right directory... Enter this:"g++ -c hello.cpp" then:"g++ hello.o -o hello" and then lastly "./hello" and that should be your first program... A quick recap... g++ is the compiler... if it says that it could not be found, install it... #include <iostream> is the library that gives you access to input and output stuff in the command prompt... using namespace std; can be left out, but this is the newer way of programming with c++... if you left it out, you could have made the program like this: #include <iostream> int main() { std::cout<<"Hello world"; } and it should have no difference... int main() is where the program starts running... this is the first method that is called when your program runs... the cout<<"Hello world"<<endl; part is just to say output the text to the command prompt... I hope that gives you a better understanding of what you asked...
  3. ok... Installing Linux is usually very easy (and easier depending on the distro you are installing)... I know that with Ubuntu, you start your system, go into windows, pop in the disk, tell it to install Ubuntu and in no time at all, you have Linux on your machine... restart your PC and there will be a boot menu... Just choose the OS you want to start and off you go no for the c++ part... on my website: www.lintwurm.co.za (yes, I am whoring out my website ) there is a really simple tutorial on c++... Using windows to program isn't really a bad thing, but Linux was made for that exact reason... so I trust it way more When you have Linux installed, you can go to the Add Software and choose to install the compiler... and then you program and compile and you will have a working program in no time... For website hacking, start small... Look into SQL-injections ect... I don't want to spoonfeed coz that is not how you learn... For any type of hacking, the best advice is READ READ and READ untill your eyes bleed... Let me know if you need more help
  4. ok... first things first... Welcome to the forum... Linux is an OS (Operating System) just like windows, except it is opensource and WAY more awesome and stable than windows... Now just like windows you have to decide which one of the Linux versions are for you... There are plenty... Ubuntu and Kubuntu are widely regarded to be the best starting OS's for windows users, but having said that I feel that you don't really get the Linux experience like with OpenSuse etc. But the best hacking Linux distro is BackTrack... So if you really want to start hacking download that also, I am not sure if the computer that you are trying to hack is on the same network or if its one PC you are trying to hack... If they are two different pc's, run the distro Damn Vulnerable Linux on the computer you are trying to hack... Then... Hacking is a good idea... It gets you to think differently from the normal computer user... but for now choose what type of hacking you want to start with... do you want to write cracks, hack websites? When you have chosen one, learn as much as possible of the subject... For instance if you choose website hacking... Set up your own websites and see if you can get your pc to crash, or see if you can bypass security measures... A good place where you can start is Hack This Site There is no one way we can tell you THIS IS HOW YOU HACK... It is not that simple... Every computer is different. also, learning how to program will make your life very much easier in the world of hacking... Learn a language like C or C++... maybe even java... also learn a scripting language like python or perl... There are plenty of awesome tutorials online... one of them is: Teach yourself c++ in 21 days... We hope you enjoy your stay at the forums...
