    Help With Building A Virtual Hack Lab

    I am trying to figure out how to build one, what OS's to use (I have various linux's as well as Win Vista / 7 and my Friend has my copy of XP.) How would I go about making a VM hack lab?
    Lets see, how do I do this? Follow these steps! 1. Find table | 2. Bash head | 3. feel osmosis kicking in | 4. You are now enlightened!

    any os with a vmware workstation/player shud do fine, just make sure u gt enuf of memory n disk space if u r plannig to do some real tests n
    planning to keep evn snapshots of ur guest os's. on ma side i prefer linux as host, aftr all it goes easy on the resources.

    you can set up a lab using virtualization software like VirtualBox or vmware player. also you can get direct images of different OS from the below given link.

    Welcome to ThoughtPolice VMware images!

    Backtrack is the OS which has got necessary tools for penetration test already installed in it.

    Thanks for the tip, but also backtrack is not the only way to go. I have been using a Distro called Backbox (Not blackbox) its a newer os but it aims to give people a functional place to work on hacking with out having to do massive tweak overhauls like some people do in Backtrack. Since it uses XFCE as the default desktop with the option for a custom version of Fluxbox(manual install of course) its far more speedy IMHO. Either way, I just wanted to put that out there.
    Here is a link if you are interested: Home | BackBox Linux

    I've been using virtualbox for years as my primary virtualization product and never had any problems. I would still use Backtrack over BackBox but I agree it is a nice distro.
    When the way comes to an end, then change - having changed, you pass through

    first set up all these machines in NAT networking mode and i prefer for practice purpose set the windows machines or victim machines firewall off !!
