Hello everyone,
     I've recently started delving into "pentesting" and started out with Backtrack. I've been using Backtrack for a few months now and have learned quite a bit from where I first started. I am starting to see the bugs in the newest Backtrack distribution and want to start switching over to BackBox. The only issue I have is that I'm very used to navigating Backtrack and feel somewhat lost in Backbox.

     Do you guys have any tips, suggestions for someone that is new to BlackBox to become acquainted with navigating BackBox? I would like to know most of all just my way around BackBox in terminal.

Examples: cd /pentest/exploits/metasploit  would get me into the metasploit directory
              cd /pentest/exploits/set   would get me into the social engineering toolkit
              cd /pentest/passwords/   would get me into the directory where I could find John & hashcat

Things like these seemed very self explanatory when learning your way around Backtrack and I feel totally lost when it comes to finding my way around in BackBox. Any suggestions, bits of knowledge, would be much appreciated. (I've only played around with BackBox for about 30 minutes so far and I find it to be more appealing if I could get used to it.)

There's a video section that might help.

Try to spend a bit more time on it and pls make sure that you have read the forum disclaimer regardless.
for your convenience here the link of disclaimer: http://forum.backbox.org/announcements/general-forum-conditions/

A bit effort don't hurt anyone, the forum is not the first place to dig into unless you don't have an intelligent question.

BlackBox  ???

Blackbox is the more well known of the two "BBox" linux variations. Personally I like this one more but I have to beat most people over the head with a fish (AKA give them the link to the home page) to show them the OS and usually it gets some cool results.
