I just download backtrack linux 5 R2 and wrote it to a disk. When I restarted the computer with the disk in the drive the backtrack menu did not have an install option. It had a lot of options but installation wasnt one of them. I noticed that the Desktop of the root user had a file called backtrack-desktop.install, or something like that. Any ideas? Thanks.

The link you mentioned seeing on the desktop is the installer for backtrack!

Double clicking on it will run the installer.

I can only find that file when I navigate to it from withing the backtrack command prompt. I do not see that file while navigating the contents of the cd from Windows or a Linux GUI.
