Hey denny8569

First backtrack 2 is a slightly older system, you will probably want to use a later version.
Also with ubuntu please make sure you have the correct drivers.
It is not reccomended to run your internet through a usb cable however this link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsbAdslModem/EciAdsl

may help.

To properly dual boot, follow this guide here. (Go to Page 9)

If your DSL Modem has Ethernet use it instead. You will get better performance.
