Installation of Damn Vulnerable Linux (DVL)

The installation of DVL is quite easy. After booting the ISO, you just have to create a partition, format it,  launch the BackTrack Installer and install the boot loader. To make a long story short, here is a very good installation instruction (you can jump to "3. Partition the disk"):

DVL Installation 

The installationbar in the BackTrack Installer stalled for at least 5 Minutes at 85%, but I could see through

# iostat /dev/sda 1

that still some data has been written to the disk. So just be patient :-)

Another hint: I could not execute lilo -v as described in the link, of course I had to chroot to the DVL installation first. Then everybody worked as a charm.
