Thank you much! I'll try that soon. Looks cleaner than the instructions on
BackTrack's site, which somehow led me to trouble.

Has your success been with the 64-bit or 32-bit BackTrack? KDE or Gnome
(shouldn't matter to run the web version, I know ... unless some library
conflict is dragged in)? Any reason to use an earlier version than BackTrack
5 r 2? My not-successful try was with BackTrack 5 r 2, 32-bit, KDE - but it
may well have been the different instructions or my making some mistake
rather than version stuff that got me stuck.
