    Hello everyone :) this my first thread in this site and actually I did set up Kali the day before yesterday ; so I have almost no experience with the use of Linux . I know , Kali isn't a good start to learn using Linux properly but even so , I am just so curious about how the things work in this world :)

    Maybe these are just the influences that the amazing articles have made upon me.Here's what I did all day while I was setting up Kali and after the installation there are lots that I can't figure out .

    ---I downloaded Kali Linux 1.0.4_ amd64.iso file then downloaded win32diskimager application from Kali Website and wrote the image with the mentioned app. to a USB Stick :)
    ---Then I restarted my laptop and booted from USB , Kali Sceen popped up and I chose Live and the hardest part (for me it was) was shrinking the SSD with ''Gparted'' to open some space for Kali .
    ---Well, I coped with Gparted and the last thing needed to do was installation.I rebooted and chose Graphical Install and completed the set up .

    --- These were what I did .And the followings are some of my concerns ...
    1. I've set up Kali on SSD , does Kali (Kernel Linux 3.7) support SSD's or at least is there anything I can do for best performance ?

    2.I have an Optimus laptop which has an integrated Intel Gpu and also nVIDIA Gpu which I know there will be difficulties for me in future when I want to use nVIDA :(
    Anyone who can try to give a hand will be much appreciated ...
    Also I found this http://docs.kali.org/general-use/install-nvidia-drivers-on-kali-linux


    3. I've heard about Pyrit(using GPU core power for processing calculations ) ; I had tried on Bactrack 5 r3 but it was a frustration ; now what I wonder is , if it's possible to use Pyrit ? :)

    Actually there are lots of question marks in my mind but anyways I should thank you for reading my post :)
    Have a great day ;)

    Well , I know you explained everthing in its best way , but there are some points that I might not succeed in doing alone .
    And I should confirm and avoid my misunderstandings by a****g the sentences .
    4. I will open terminal and should I type these ''>'' , and above there was a ''$'' ; should I type ?
    And forgive me I 'm so newbie, how can I download the nvidia driver and is it possible to use Pyrit after installing nvidia driver ?

    Every letter that you've typed appreciated ;) By the way , do you have any information about Pyrit ? (And will the nvida driver version be the latest version after I installed the nvidia driver like you said ?) -- Just curiousity :) :D

    Just a heads up with Kali you need to watch what you add or some of its features wont work right. Kali and BackTrack were meant to be light weight.
