After you get use to everything get BackTrack5. It comes built in with a lot of helpful "pentesting" tools that are very useful. Learn how the tools work, what they do, ect. Take time to not just USE the tools, but actually LEARN from them. You may also want to look into getting a network adapter with packet injection. Toy around with the free tools and get to know what hacking is all about. That is how to start being a hacker, IMHO!

Goatboy wrote:Everyone seems to have this idea that hacking means breaking into websites. Why not start with C? Or Ruby? Or skip programming and read about filesystems? Or Linux? Since hacking is such an ambiguous thing, there's really no clear route to take. If you wanna focus on web security, go for the good server-side languages. For applications, go for C/C++. For electronics, Arduino.
