Upcoming Pentest Lab

Having read the latest blog posts from Syn Junkie, I have decided to setup my own pentest lab.

Following Syn’s recommendations I have decided to to lean on virtualization to provide the basis for my lab.
I too have 3 laptops, 1 x Lenovo Thinkpad Z61p running Citrix Xenserver 5.5.0
1 x Lenovo Thinkpad X60s running Ubuntu 9.10 and KVM
1 x ASUS EEEPC 1000HE Hackbook running Backtrack 4
I have chosen to create a completely re usable lab system, by creating templates and snapshots of the basic OS’s needed for pentesting, ie XP Pro SP1, SP2 and SP3 and so on for other OS’s.
