So I bought this book "Hacking: The Art of Exploitation", by Jon Erickson(In case your curious ). It came with a LiveCD of Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty I think) setup just for hacking. I know that its just got a whole bunch of shell programs aimed at hacking,programming and examing code. My assumption is that the book is aimed at people using windows exclusively with no Linux experience, and since I already have Ubuntu, why run off a LiveCD with nothing installed when I could in my already installed version of 9.10?
SO my question is, is there anyway I can port all the extra goodies included on this disc into my current file-system so that I can still follow along exactly with the book but be in my native installation rather than on a LiveCD?
Ive thought about copying the /bin without overwriting any 9.10 software, but am somewhat apprehensive of doing so I havent done it yet.
Thanks Guys, any help given is appreciated.
